Pod of Bottlenose Dolphins Documented by PWF Research Team

A large pod of about 20 bottlenose dolphins was documented yesterday by our Research Team. The team was on our research vessel Ocean Protector finishing up a day of odontocete transects, and encountered the pod on their way back to Ma'alaea Harbor.

The team collected photographs for our bottlenose dolphin ID catalog and estimated the pod at 20 individuals, including many calves.
