Survey Observations

Weather conditions: Sunny/Fair, sea state: 1-2, wind direction variable

Our Living Seas volunteers conducted surveys from 7am-7pm, with dolphins spotted in every survey of the day! The dolphins were observed foraging and travelling throughout the day. During a number of surveys the dolphins were more active, leaping and lunging out of the water. Gannets were also spotted circling above groups of dolphins. Our ShoreFin team identified Snowcap and her calf in one of the groups.
