In March, we organized a press trip with the Spanish tourism office to La Gomera, bringing five journalists to this small island for responsible whale watching!
It's great to see some dolphins beginning to visit Chanonry Point after the winter and recently big Scoopy or "Flosse" to our WDC colleagues in Germany ("Flosse" meaning fin or flipper in German) has turned up and immediately caught himself a lovely big salmon, maybe 6kg in weight - good to see him keeping his strength up.
After a few frustrasting weeks of playing hide and seek with Kesslet and her baby I have managed, finally, to get a few (poor) photos of them in Inverness Harbour but I was hoping to see them nearer to my camera today at Chanonry where I had two WDC colleagues with me, Tracey and Helen, who braved the cold North East wind and misty conditions.
WDC continuously supports (since 1996) a project on one of the less known dolphin species, the Commerson’s dolphins, in Southern Patagonia, Argentina, since 1996.
I have the pleasure of introducing a guest blog by Kame-Kujira-Neko, a Japanese whale and dolphin advocate and author. Kame regularly blogs about whaling and dolphin hunting, mainly in Japanese. Her novel “Whales Ocean” was published in Japan in 1995.
In Japan, "Alternative facts" about whaling are spreading.
