|15092020| It's a sperm whale day!

|ENG|


Today got a bit windy but we had an incredible expedition!


We saw 4 different sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus), all of them showed us their tails. So later we will add these to our catalogue. Maybe we have someone new to add!


One of these sperm whales was a tiny calf!


Besides the photos that we take for photo-ID, we also collect behaviour data to understand better how the animals react with the presence of the boats and to also understand their behaviour in the natural habitat.


Thank you for joining us! Enjoy and share the photos from our expedition.


See you soon!

Hoje a manhã esteve um pouco ventosa mas tivémos uma manhã incrível!


Conseguimos ver 4 cachalotes (Physeter macrocephalus) que mostraram as suas caudas. Mais tarde iremos adicioná-las ao nosso catálogo. Talvez tenhamos algum novo!


Um dos cachalotes que vimos era um cria bastante pequena!


Para além das fotografias que recolhemos, também tiramos dados comportamentais para entender melhor como os animais reagem à presença de barcos e para entender os seus comportamentos no seu habitat natural.


Muito obrigada por se terem juntado à nossa equipa!

Aproveitem e partilhem as fotografias da vossa expedição.

Vemo-nos em breve!
