Dolphin calf observed on the second Earthwatch expedition
Last Wednesday we successfully completed this year's second research expedition “Tracking dolphins in the Adriatic Sea”
in collaboration between Morigenos and Earthwatch Institute.
We recorded 8 dolphin sightings and collected a lot of data. We were in the company of some well-known dolphins as well as some less commonly observed. Among others, we enjoyed the company of Moni with her newborn calf, their friends and Nevio.
The third research expedition is in progress with the participation of young people between 16 and 18 years of age.
Still, we invite students from Slovenia and other countries in the region to join us in our international summer research camps in August and September. Summer research camps are an internship programme on marine mammals and marine conservation biology.

Vida and Wifi enriched the first research expedition with Earthwatch Institute
Last week we successfully completed this year's first expedition “Tracking dolphins in the Adriatic Sea
” in collaboration between Morigenos and Earthwatch Institute.
Despite the fickle weather, we had several dolphin sightings. Most often we were in the company of dolphins Vida and Wifi, which we also observed in the rain. We also participated in a beach clean-up in Strunjan, which was organized as part of the national campaign "Living with the sea".
Until September we will conduct six more research expeditions; just today we are launching the second one and already welcoming new participants.
