CSR_17 (September 5th - 11th)


Our seventeenth week in the Pelagos Sanctuary was renamed the ‘sperm whale week’ following two very intense first days of sperm whale sightings. Despite the initial difficult weather conditions, our hydrophone allowed us to acoustically detect clicks from three sperm whales, which we followed assiduously until all the necessary data were collected. One of these whales was identified as "Enrico"! In the second half of the week we headed towards the eastern part of the Sanctuary, but we didn’t sight any cetaceans. Nevertheless the ever cheerful participants and crew celebrated our 250th sighting of the season, moored next to the beautiful island of Gallinara.

Viridiana, Martina, Alessandra and Claudio

Following link is for participants of this week's expedition, showing the ship's route, pictures of some of the sightings and of some moments of the cruise which were memorable (or even not so...)

Ai partecipanti al turno è dedicato uno spazio con il percorso effettuato durante la settimana, le foto di alcuni avvistamenti e qualche immagine dei momenti da ricordare - importanti e non.
