03.08.2016 – Sinfonia of the sea

On five trips today we saw all togehter four different species of toothed whales. Retrospective, a successful day like this, seems like a “sinfonia of the sea”. Composed by the different temper of the individual species, creating an echo also inside us. Sometimes the tempo is rather Adagio (slow), then changing into Allegro (faster). Playing music in the human visitor in his other living space.

Between all the beauty, we also saw an animal in distress. A young Bottlenose dolphin had a fishhook with fishingline inside his mouth. Unfortunately we were unable to reach or help him.
