The longest running and largest ALL-volunteer, non-profit, research, education and conservation organization dedicated to the protection of the wild, estuarine Bottlenose dolphin and our shared environment.  TDP operates with a NMFS /NOAA (National Marine Fisheries Service / National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) authorization to conduct Photo-ID dolphin research.
