Did you know that we can identify different dolphins by their faces? Due to high interest in our recent dolphin face identification paper by the scientific community and various media, the publisher of Marine Mammal Science decided to make the paper freely available to everyone for the rest of the year, regardless of subscriptions to the journal!
We are very happy about that, as we believe in sharing science openly, but could not afford to pay for the Open Access option when we published the paper. Even though as researchers, we always share our work with ...

At the end of October, our society joined up with the team of Moja reka si and Coca-cola Slovenia to clean up the banks of the river Dragonja. Dragonja is the longest river in Primorska and since it runs into the Adriatic Sea, a lot of trash ends up in the sea, which is very dangerous for dolphins and other marine animals. During the action, we cycled 50 km with electric bicycles and collected almost 20 kg of trash. After the successful completion of our task, our members gave a short presentation on our society, our goals and our ...
Morigenos researchers have discovered that individual dolphins can be identified by their faces, “inventing” a novel method of dolphin identification. They presented their findings in a study, published today in Marine Mammal Science, the central scientific journal for studies of marine mammals: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/mms.12451/full
