Kate Charlton-Robb, a PhD researcher at Monash University in Australia discovered a new species of dolphin off the coast of Port Phillip Bay and the Gippsland Lakes in Victoria. What makes this discovery especially fascinating is the fact that only three new dolphin species have been formally identified since the late 1800s.

Ms Charlton-Robb’s findings have been published in the PLoS ONE journal and she has formally named the new dolphin Tursiops australis, an Aboriginal name given to dolphins that means ‘large sea fish of the porpoise kind.”

Visit Australia’s ABC Radio to listen to an interview with her.
