First newborn of the year

Last week we recorded the first newborn dolphin this year! We followed a group of about 25
dolphins close to Piran, most of which we know well. One of them was a tiny newborn, only a few
days old. The photograph shows pale lines, a result of the baby being “squished” inside the mother’s
womb. Dolphin calves are mainly born in the warm part of the year, so we hope to see new
additions to this population in the upcoming weeks.
