On Thursday, October 8th, the Seabrook Natural History Group will present Dr. Brian Balmer discussing North Atlantic Dolphin Populations. In 2013, Dr. Balmer assumed his current position as a Scientist with the Oceans and Human Health Branch of the Hollings Marine Laboratory in Charleston, South Carolina. Prior to this move, Brian spent 12 years with the Chicago Zoological Society’s Sarasota Dolphin Research Program, moving up from Intern to Staff Scientist. He graduated from Virginia Tech with Bachelors of Science majors in wildlife science and biology. Brian’s graduate research at the University of North Carolina focused on identifying the population structure of bottlenose dolphins in two regions that have been impacted by different types of stressors; St. Joseph Bay, FL and the southern coast of Georgia.
