15 years ago these were among the first dolphins to ever be photo-identified along the Slovenian coast

On this day, exactly 15 years ago, we first met and photographed dolphins Morigenos Deinon, Foki, Alenka and Wit. These were among the first dolphins to ever be photo-identified along the Slovenian coast or in the Gulf of Trieste. We first encountered them on 30 March 2003 in Moon Bay, between Izola and Strunjan, Slovenia. We still regularly see these dolphins, and consider them our old friends. We hope to keep encountering them for many years to come! We share with you some old photos, which at that time were still taken on film!                           ...

Our paper about identifying dolphins by their faces freely available to everyone

Did you know that we can identify different dolphins by their faces? Due to high interest in our recent dolphin face identification paper by the scientific community and various media, the publisher of Marine Mammal Science decided to make the paper freely available to everyone for the rest of the year, regardless of subscriptions to the journal! We are very happy about that, as we believe in sharing science openly, but could not afford to pay for the Open Access option when we published the paper. Even though as researchers, we always share our work with ...
