Stenella frontalis

Gut haben wir's gemacht mit unseren Fahrten heute: beide Boote sind nur vormittags rausgefahren und, wie erwartet, ist es bei uns im Südwesten der Insel ab Mittag immer windiger geworden. Es gab hunderte von Fleckendelfinen in kleineren Grüppchen zu bewundern beim springen, Wellen surfen, Bugwellenreiten und beim Fressen. Ob wohl auch die Ribeira Brava den Delfin mit der verletzten Finne gesehen hat? Auf dem Rückweg hat sich die Stenella dann das geplante Delfinariums Gelände näher angeschaut. Wer mit uns dagegen protestieren möchte, hier ist eine portugiesische Petition.

Both our boats went out in the morning todays, because as we expected the wind came stronger in the afternoon. We saw hundrets of spotted dolphins in small groups jumping around, surfing the waves and eating. Did the guests on board Ribeira Brava also saw the dolphin with a hurt fin? On our way back with Stenella we went to see the Marina do Lugar de Baixo, where they are planning to build a delphinarium. If you dont agree with this project please help us and sign the petition here.

Ambos os barcos saíram hoje de manhã porque a tarde, como esperado, entrou vento. Vimos centenas de golfinhos pintados em grupos pequenos saltando, surrando ondas, acompanhando os barcos e comendo. Será que os clientes a bordo do Ribeira brava também viram o golfinhos com a barbatana dorsal magoada? Com o Stenella na volta passamos pela Marina do Lugar de Baixo para ver de mais perto onde é suposto construírem o delfinário. Se vocês não concordam com esta barbaridade por favor assinem a petição aqui.
