Winter Season 2010 Ends

Dorsal Fins

Dolphin Dorsal Fins, Byron Bay, Australia

The Dolphin Ecology & Acoustics Project Winter 2010 field season has now come to an end.  We had some great weather along the way, with some of the clearest visibility we’ve seen all year.  Lots of dolphins as always and also lots of feeding with lots of prey species migrating along the coast.  We were also blessed with many humpback whales who the dolphins would often associate with and travel along side as the whales headed north to their winter breeding and birthing grounds.  Thanks to all the volunteers who are now recovering from the chilly days up the top of the Cape Byron Lighthouse and kayak surveys!  The next dolphin project field season is scheduled for summer 2011.
