CSR_10 (July, 18th - 24th)

When CSR 10 started the weather forecast for the week seemed it was not going to give us many opportunities to go in search for animals, but finally participants could enjoy two long sightings of sperm whales and many encounters with sea life. Even the hours spent in the harbour didn’t affect the mood of people onboard, who could learn more about cetaceans through lectures and a visit to the oceanographic museum of Monaco, and also take part in the data analysis doing the matching and the editing of the pictures of sperm whale and Risso’s dolphins. The great food prepared by Sabina, the director of the project who re-invented herself as cook for the week, gave also a great contribution. Participants of CSR 10 will take home some striped dolphins sightings, an encounter with a turtle, a Mediterranean manta ray jump, two well known Sperm whales, Matt and Albert, and the emotion of swimming in the deep blue.
