Byron Bay Dolphins

Dolphin Research Season Ends with A Splash!

During August-September 2013, the Dolphin Research Australia field team were out in Byron Bay observing the dolphin and whale populations.  The project is a long-term monitoring program that seeks to understand the ecology and structure of local Byron Bay dolphin populations.  The season was full of excitement which lots of dolphin action coinciding with the bait ball migration.  Lots of whale action as well with humpbacks, southern rights and minkes keeping the team busy.  We even tracked a great white shark in the shallows of Cape Byron – the first we’ve seen that close into sure since the research began in 2003.  A special thanks to the Dolphin Research Team once again for making this season a special one!!
