Working at Lobosonda gives him the possibility to be out in the blue, learning more everyday and passing the experience he accumulated over the years to others.
Since Madeira is located in a sub-tropical region and has a large variety of species throughout the year, Daniel finds it rather difficult to choose a specific favorite marine mammal. This is what makes working in whale watching so much fun for him! However, after observing and learning more about Sperm whales over the years, he has become intrigued with their place in the ocean.
He is fascinated by the deep blue where they hunt, their biology, their life cycle, social structure, language and their “culture”, a concept that until recently was only considered a human feature. More and more research is being done on these sophisticated animals and he believes that there is much more to discover and learn.
