*From Norris to Now: An Interactive timeline about the evolution of spinner
dolphin science and management *

This interactive web-based timeline of scientific, historical, cultural and
management events is a public resource to help educate people about spinner
dolphins in Hawaii. http://www.spinnerdolphin.net/Timeline/

The timeline arose from part of Heather Heenehan’s Master
the Master of Environmental Management degree at Duke’s Nicholas
of the Environment (which can be read here
http://dukespace.lib.duke.edu/dspace/handle/10161/3609).  Heenehan was
advised by Dr. David Johnston and Dr. Zackary Johnson.  The initial entries
were populated into the timeline by students as part of an assignment in
Duke’s Marine Mammals: Biology, Ecology and Conservation class during
Summer Session II in 2012. After these initial entries, the timeline was
published for the general public, and new users can register and load
events into the timeline. All entries will be moderated before they are
posted to the site.

We hope that you will find the timeline to be interesting and informative
and give you a sense of the social construction of spinner dolphins in
Hawaii. This was a well-studied population from the 1970′s to the 1990′s
(by Ken Norris and his colleagues) and the timeline looks at spinner
science and management issues from the time that Captain Cook arrived to
today. Currently the timeline includes events primarily occurring in the
United States and mainly in Hawaii but we welcome any and all international
events that relate to spinner dolphins or any events nationally or
internationally that have had a hand in the social construction of these

We hope that you will consider contributing an event to the timeline.
Adding an event is simple! Just create a login and then follow the
instructions here: http://www.spinnerdolphin.net/Timeline/adding-events/

If you have any questions about the timeline or would like more information
please contact Heather Heenehan (hlh18 at duke.edu).

The timeline is created with the Curator theme for WordPress developed by
Molitor. It can be purchased here
