Dolphins of Greece - Amvrikikos Gulf



I've arrived in Greece after quite a harrowing 38 hour journey, but its well worth it.
The research station is in the little town of Vonitsa, near the west coast of Greece. We have spent each of the past mornings on the Gulf spotting dolphins, photographing them, and recording data about their behavior, social groups, feeding, etc...
My job this morning was to input data on the hand held computer. Not an easy task on a 6 meter inflatable boat which keeps moving, in the sun, with others calling out sighting information all at once.
Here are a couple of photos. I'll add more as time permits and even some video of the dolphins.
