Summer Dolphins

The two weeks of our summer dolphin research field season in Byron Bay begun with some great observations – new born dolphins learning to surf with their mothers, sharks feeding off Tallows Beach and even marlin jumping close to Cape Byron.  We’ve been hampered this week by ex-cyclone Oswald which has brought high seas, rain, floods and wind, consequently cancelling our field seasons.  This next week is looking better and we’ll be back out observing dolphins from the Cape Byron Lighthouse.
