• Question: why do you choose to study animals which arent really found in their natural habitat in the uk as wont a large portion of the money if you win go towards travelling rather than scientific research?

      1. I am not from the UK.
      2. my plan is to use the money for an event to make blind kids experience echolocation and dolphins sounds and show them a possible future for them (they really good in analyzing sounds). So no money will go into travel.
      3. This is exactly why it would be nice to win the money. Everybody loves dolphins but there are so many things that are still unknown as that UK is full of dolphins!!! In Scotland, Wales and along the South coast of England are the best spot
