Aurelio D'Agostino, MD, observing bottlenose dolphins off Galaxidi, Greece.
Thirty years ago, Aurelio—Giovanni's family physician—reported seeing dolphins on a regular basis east of the island of Losinj, Croatia. Information provided by Aurelio prompted Giovanni to move to Losinj and start studying bottlenose dolphins from inflatable boats. That is where it all started. Study areas and methodology have changed, but the basic approach and passion have remained the same.
