Historical Events

Many historical events have shaped what we know about spinner dolphin in Hawaii, and why we value them. On our timeline, Historical Events are meant to capture important historical milestones that do not directly relate to the science and conservation of spinner dolphin, but instead provide information about events that have influenced the social construction of spinner dolphins in more indirect and diverse ways. For example, our timeline includes the arrival of Captain Cook to the main Hawaiian Islands, which heralded the beginnings of a huge transformation of Hawaii into the tourist destination it is today. If you know of an important historical milestone that has shaped how we think about spinner dolphins, login and and post it!
