The CSU group helped me collect data this morning and we did one more each of baseline and KD space use data collection. It was a breezy morning but the underwater visibility was really good! And, the dolphins were social, but mostly below the water surface.
After data collection, we had breakfast and then the CSU group left for the airport. They were all traveling much today to return home and prepare for school. We had a great week!
Arriving today were Bill, Ron, Madison, Jeff, Rachel, Manon, and John for our research eco-tour. We have a week to collect data with some folks diving, and some focusing on the research. The weather might not cooperate these first few days but we are hoping the rain holds off.
Data collection will begin at 6:30 tomorrow … until then!
Kathleen and DCP’s first 2020 eco-tour group!
