Apparently, the mammals are making their way into the bay more frequently. Scientists want to know why and how often (among other details) — and a new website could help.

It’s not unusual to see one of these beautiful mammals in the summer. And there is anecdotal evidence that dolphins are making their way into the bay more often than they used to, said Helen Bailey, a scientist at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science’s Chesapeake Biological Laboratory.
