Dolphin Nevio

This is a dolphin Nevio. Unlike dolphins from the “morning” and “evening” group, which like to swim in big groups, Nevio mostly prefers to be alone. Despite this, he can remain in acoustic contact with other dolphins over larger distances. During these days be like Nevio – remain in contact with your friends at a distance.  #stayhome

FIRST SIGHTING OF THE NEW DECADE

Today we had the first dolphin sighting in the new decade! We found a large group of dolphins along the shore of Piran (Slovenia), including mothers with calves.

Those of you that adopted the female Moni in the past will be happy to know she was seen today with a calf. Many thanks to fisherman Boris who called us when he spotted dolphins.

The main reason for the worrisome status of most of them are the fishing nets that catch and kill hundreds of thousands of marine mammals each year. Whales and dolphins lived alongside human fishers in coastal seas and rivers for thousands of years. But after World War II, the nets made of cotton and hemp were replaced by cheaper and more durable synthetic nets. These gill-nets ...
