Dolphins mind the shell: About an innovative foraging strategy that spreads beyond the mother-calf bond

Being part of the ‘Dolphin Innovation Project’, Sonja Wild was privileged to study the fascinating behaviour of the Shark Bay dolphins in Western Australia.

The whole study by Sonja and her colleagues has recently been published in Current Biology.
