Bottlenose dolphins produce individually distinctive `signature whistles'. This paper considers the feasibility of using artificial neural networks to identify individual dolphins using their signature whistles. The proposed scheme uses wavelet analysis to extract salient features from the signature whistles which are then classified by a neural network. Experimental results suggest that wavelet analysis followed by classification by neural networks may provide a reliable means of identifying dolphin signature whistles.
