ACCOBAMS Cetaceans Day – 2018 edition

It was in Malaga, Spain, on June 8, 2018, that this 4th edition of the ACCOBAMS Cetaceans Day took place. For this 2018 edition, on World Oceans Day, the children had the chance to visit the Marine Research Conservation International research boat: the Song of the Whale. It is on board the Song of the Whale that part of the ASI is carried out in the Mediterranean.

During the visit, the crew took the time to explain to the children the operation of a research boat. They could listen to the recordings of the sounds emitted by cetaceans and thus try to recognize the species among other activities.

Many thanks to the crew of Song of the Whale for their availability and kindness!
