10.07.2016 – Cristiano Ronaldo

10.07.2016 – Cristiano Ronaldo

Who doesn’t know him? I like him very much, “our” Madeirian Football icon. But what has Cristiano Ronaldo to do with Lobosonda – Madeira whale watching? Very easy 😉 Today we had during all our trips sightings of Atlantic Spotted dolphins and Pilot whales and today is the final match of Euro 2016 between Portugal and France. The Pilot whales have a head like a football 😀 And here we are back from the trip and in a few hours we will keep our fingers crossed. We hope to see a fair and interesting game. Fair play would be also needed towards the Pilot whales. We saw and heard them vocalizing today even out of the water, amazing!!! But in the far north of Europe, on the Faroe Islands, they are brutally killed. Not a fair play, humans can be so inhuman sometimes.

UPDATE: Portugal didn’t gave up and we all know the result, we will not give up as well on the fight for the protection of the ocean and it’s animals!!!
