CSR_11 (July 25th- 31st)

Participants of CSR 11 experienced one of the most exciting sightings of the season: the first group of long-finned pilot whales! We spent about two hours with them, collecting data, listening to their vocalizations and enjoying the curious attitudes of the calf and the two juveniles of the group. Volunteers also had the opportunity to listen to the voices of two sperm whales, to track the animals and finally to meet them.
During the days spent in the harbour they have been able to visit the oceanographic museum of Monaco, to experience a different way to enjoy cetaceans onboard the whale watching boat Corsara, and to learn more about these animals through lectures and videos.
CSR 11 people shared the emotions but also the difficulties of life onboard, and it was a great pleasure to have such a nice group of persons with us.
