I've done stunningly well seeing wildlife on this trip so far, but nothing comes close to seeing dolphins up close! This pod was so friendly and we even got some little jumps from the babies, Solstice and French Toast (named after a particularly gruelling French defeat courtesy of the All Blacks) #newzealand#bottlenose#dolphins#wildlife#travelling

#tbt to when I saw this magnificent creature. Dolphins forever.
This week, during our cetacean study, we were lucky to track a superpod of bottlenose dolphins in our bay. These charismatic marine mammals are frequent visitors to Mossel Bay and we run a couple of projects to study them. One of our projects uses fin ID. We use a similar method for identifying white sharks due to their unique dorsal fin.
