Georgetown professor’s research premieres on Animal Planet
A documentary about research by a Georgetown professor, which premiered on campus two months ago, is making its debut on Animal Planet this Sunday. Professor Janet Mann, of the psychology and biology departments, studies dolphins on the west coast of Australia when not at Georgetown.
The documentary, “The Dolphins of Shark Bay” follows the family of 33-year-old female Puck and her struggle to keep her family safe.
In her own words, the documentary presents Mann’s research “pretty accurately,” including a “groundbreaking” segment on the dolphin practice of hydroplaning.
