*Society of Marine Mammalogy Louis M Herman Research Scholarship Open for

Louis M. Herman, Ph.D. and Emeritus Professor at the University of Hawaii
at Manoa, was a pioneer and trailblazer in research on dolphin sensory
perception and cognition, and humpback whale behavioral ecology. This work
was carried out through the world renowned Kewalo Basin Marine Mammal
Laboratory (KBMML) that he established in 1969 in Honolulu, Hawaii. He also
co-founded The Dolphin Institute (TDI), dedicated to dolphins and whales
through education, research, and conservation. KBMML/TDI’s findings on
marine mammals were published in over 160 scientific papers and featured in
more than 230 national and international media articles, television and
radio programs, and documentary films. Dr. Herman’s life’s work
significantly influenced marine mammal conservation. It also had an
enormous impact on the lives and careers of countless interns,
undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, visiting
faculty, and volunteers from around the world, all of whom played important
roles in the unique research team he assembled over more than four decades.
Dr. Herman will always be remembered for his innovative, creative, and
scientifically rigorous approach to the study of the marine mammals he so
loved, and for the future generations of marine mammal researchers he and
his work continue to inspire.

Dr. Herman’s family, colleagues, and friends established the Louis M.
Herman Research Scholarship in 2017 to honor his legacy by promoting the
type of research that was the focus of his groundbreaking studies. The
