Dr. Lenin E. Oviedo Correa
Research Associate & Associate Head of the Tropical Marine Mammals Ecology Lab, Centro de Investigación de Cetáceos Costa Rica (CEIC)
Dr. Lenin Enrique Oviedo Correa has 20 years of experience on marine biodiversity and habitat analyses projects in his home country of Venezuela, Costa Rica, and Africa. His research focuses on habitat assessments through the behavior and trophic and spatial ecology of small odontocetes (toothed whales, including dolphins). Through his research, he aims to determine the behavior ecology of dolphins that live in the same area in the tropics and encounter each other frequently, which includes the groups in Golfo Dulce. Lenin is currently a chief scientific advisor and research associate with Centro de Investigacion de Cetaceos de Costa Rica (CEIC).
