This spring and summer, the PCDP collaborated with the Potomac Conservancy to have a naming contest, allowing the public to name two of our frequently sighted dolphins. This resulted in considerable press and competition to name the dolphins!

The punchline- “Mac” and “Chessie” won (visit https://potomac.org/name-potomac-dolphins). Stay tuned to learn more about them.
