This piece is a compilation of two trips I’ve taken with research missions.
The Oceania project August of 07 is studying the transitory Humpback whale population in Hervey bay, Queensland, Australia. Anyone can sign up to help out with the research.
Having spent the winter in the Great Barrier reef, giving birth to their calves, they journey down the coast of Australia returning to the Antarctic for the summer. The vessel was the Moon Dancer, and a small group of us had paid to volunteer to help with the research undertaken by Trish and Wally Franklin PhD.
Spanish dolphin EarthWatch expedition: Sept 06.
The mission started in 1992, after the Toftevaag had been restored and refitted
The first project was the study of a mass die-off of the striped dolphin off the coast of Spain.
Recently they have focused on monitoring of cetacean populations that have been suffering a regression in the Mediterranean over the last few decades.
The research site chosen is the Alboran Sea, the transition zone between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
