Groups of dolphins were spotted by our LivingSeas volunteers throughout the day yesterday. Behaviours observed included mostly foraging and socialising around the reef near the cardinal buoy and off the shore of Dolau beach. Earlier in the morning six dolphins swam quite close to the harbour wall and “Lipstick” was recognized through Photo ID by our ShoreFin volunteers.
