We are back to Marsa Alam where we just concluded 15 long, hot, intense, windy days collecting data about the lovely spinners of Samadai. This year we launched two new projects aimed at better describing the dolphin population structure as well as monitoring group behaviour to grasp possible signs of disturbance caused by human activities.More will come on these topics, for the moment we are happy to share some of the pictures from the field.
We would like to thank Esmail for being so patient and passionate, Islam, Asmaa, Ahmed Ali and Ebada for assisting with the data collection. Many thanks to the crew of “Aquarius 4” for helping and taking good care of us. And of course a big thank goes to the HEPCA patrolling team for doing a great job.
Amina and I will be in Marsa Alam throughout the summer, feel free to drop by Samadai office anytime! Otherwise we will see you out there. We take the chance to remind all guides and visitors that we are very interested in hearing about your encounters with wild dolphins. Find us on facebook or email us and share comments, pictures, information.
