Abstract


Ethnobiological studies and educational projects related to bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus, Montagu, 1821) are still incipient in the Southwest Atlantic Ocean (SWAO). We review studies conducted in the region, especially Brazil, where more information is available. Proposals to implement studies related to ethnobiology and environmental education in relation to the species are also presented.


Keywords
