Giovanni Bearzi and Stefano Mazzotti, Director of the Ferrara Museum of Natural History, with a crowd of interested participants and a supervising skeleton. The event, part of the Darwin Day celebration series, focused on shifting perceptions of whales and dolphins, the difference between conservation and animal welfare, dolphin research in the Gulf of Corinth, and the greatness of Charles Darwin.
Thank you Giorgio Bertorelle (University of Ferrara) and Stefano Mazzotti for a lively evening.

This photo, taken in July 2013, shows a Mediterranean monk seal near an unaware bather. The seal foraged in the area for a relatively long time, unnoticed by several bathers and people on the beach. Sometimes, lack of monk seal reports may not relate to lack of animals (as scientists would put it: "absence of evidence is not evidence of absence").

You can join us in the field for a “Dolphin Biology Week”.
A Dolphin Biology Week will provide you with opportunities of monitoring dolphins and other fauna in the Gulf of Corinth, together with experienced marine biologists who have been studying Mediterranean dolphins for a long time.
This one-week programme includes informal seminars on marine conservation and data collection during boat surveys. Through a direct involvement in field activities you will learn how the researchers manage to locate, track and photo-identify individual dolphins at sea. You will discover how a regular monitoring of the study area can contribute to the understanding of dolphin ecology and conservation needs.
