Well, it was a busy week! The weather wasn’t on our side, but we were able to see a second set of bottlenose dolphins on Tuesday’s boat trip. They put on a nice surfing show!
Mid-week was spent preparing for our first university-level field course. Today (Friday) I was joined by 14 students & their professor from the University of New Brunswick. It was a busy day settling in, getting orientated and then heading out to the dolphin grounds. There was still a chop on the sea, but the conditions were much more favorable. Soon, we were observing a group of 8 Atlantic spotted dolphins, including Split Jaw (#22), Lil’ Jess (#35), Billy (#64) and (I think) newly named Tilly (#87). All in all, a good day!
More work tomorrow,
