Azores: Team 3 in the swing of things

From our volunteer vacation / conservation holiday protecting whales, dolphins and turtles around the Azores archipelago   www.biosphere-expeditions.org/azores.

Team 3 is now well into the swing of things. After a whistle-stop weekend of introductions, briefings and training sessions, we were all eager to get on with the data collection. But initially things seemed against us: an injury, acquired just before the expedition, the weather, sea sickness, etc. However, the good news is that by today, not only have we already seen more common dolphins, loggerhead turtles and a fin whale, but the group also spotted the largest group of striped dolphins recorded so far by this year’s expedition (about 50). So stay tuned!
