|25-07-2019| Toothed whales in the South of Pico island

The 25th of July has been a full-day-at-sea for our team of researchers. A group of Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) with calfs have been found in the South of Pico island and our boat has gone there. The Sperm whales have been diving in the morning and socializing in the afternoon, so we have been able to collect different data in function of their behavior. A pod of Short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus) and 3-4 Short-beaked common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) have been around too. Bellow you can find some of the pictures that our guide Maria has taken during the whole day. Enjoy and share!
