THE SOUND OF THE SEA

1-DAY FIELD COURSE | BADALONA (BARCELONA)

Sail the coast of Barcelona to the underwater canyons of Maresme twelve miles off-shore to observe and listen to bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) and risso´s dolphins (Grampus griseus) as you contribute to build knowledge on the ecology of these spectacular marine creatures and learn basic skills to survey cetaceans. You will spend a full day out at sea with Catalonia´s beautiful coastal mountains and lively Mediterranean waters as background. A marine biologist will brief you on the context and specifics of conservation policies and efforts for the preservation of cetaceans in the Mediterranean and will lead you through the sightings and findings of the journey. Experience the wonder of science with your feet in the water!
