Cetacean Sanctuary Research, 21-27 July

These past two weeks have been superb! What a great experience it has been to meet others from around the globe. It is wonderful to be able to interact with different people with common environmental interests.

The research team was very helpful in sharing their knowledge of cetaceans and the marine environment. They have proven how necessary their work is in their effort to protect cetaceans in order to maintain the environment’s biodiversity. The lessons were informative and I enjoyed participating in data collection and other tasks.

In addition, Roberto is a wonderful captain! Much appreciation for his patience in sharing his extensive knowledge of navigation.

Thanks for the opportunity to have been part of the research which will hopefully have an effect in protecting the environment and the many wonderful species resident to this area. In the end, I can honestly say I am sad to leave. Thank again to the participants, research team and Roberto for the many unforgettable memories I will be taking with me.

La semaine sur ce bateau fut très enrichissante. Merci pour votre patience, votre écoute, et tout ce que vous nous avez appris. Une façon de vous remercier sera de rependre cet apprentissage autour de nous, chez les grands comme chez les petits.
Merci encore,
L’équipe scoute « Bonne Aventure»

Afgelopen week aan boord van Pelagos was opnieuw een geweldige ervaring. Ik wil jullie allemaal bedanken voor de bijzondere week. Naast dat ik veel plezier heb gehad heb ik veel geleerd over het leven van de cetacean in de Middelandse zee. Het heeft mij weer laten inzien hoe belangrijk het is om onze natuur en in het bijzonder het leven in de zee te beschermen. De schoonheid van de walvissen en dolfijnen is groot maar hun kwetsbaarheid ook.
Thanks again for a really good week, go on in this way!!!

Una settimana è stata sufficiente per affezionarmi a tutto ciò e con grande dispiacere domani finisce. E’ stata una delle più belle esperienze che io abbia mai fatto, resa ancora più interessante e favolosa grazie al gruppo che si è creato. Spiegare la sensazione nel vedere questi incredibili e misteriosi animali e il contatto continuo con il mare è molto difficile, si è travolti da numerose indescrivibili emozioni.

Un ringraziamento grandissimo va alle fantastiche ragazze che collaborano a questo progetto. Grazie per averci trasmesso la vostra passione, per averci coinvolto, grazie per averci fatto comprendere tante cose importanti che forse prima sottovalutavamo…grazie di cuore! Spero un giorno di poter collaborare o potervi rincontrare ancora in una favolosa esperienza come questa passata insieme. Un grandissimo in bocca al lupo per tutto e ancora mille grazie.
