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. His novel “Whales Ocean” was published in Japan in 1995.
In Japan, "Alternative facts" about whaling are spreading.
I’m delighted to present a guest blog by Oliver Dirr, a German writer, tourism expert and passionate traveller! Oliver and his wife Theresa recently - in his words - “went on a trip around the world to meet some whales and learn about whale watching. First stop: the sperm whales off Iceland.”
Is the new US Administration’s apparent negative attitude toward environmental protection an open door for renewed Japanese commercial whaling?
It a real tempest out there in the waters of the Moray Firth today. People often ask "What do dolphins do in bad weather?" and the simple answer is...they just dive down a few feet and all is relatively serene and calm compared to what its like at the surface.
