Dolphins in the sea

Searching for sun? Work in Mauritius and experience life as a Marine Biologist!

While those of us in the UK were busy eating our weight in mince pies and Christmas pudding while trying hard to stay warm and avoid the elements, marine conservation volunteers spent December completing the last northern survey of the year enjoying a day exploring the reef around Flat island, finding hermit crabs, skinks and nesting tropic birds.

On the return trip they spotted a small group of spinner dolphins that briefly came to bowride — the first official spinner dolphin sighting from these trips.

Along with all the normal boat trips to see whales, dolphins and turtles the volunteers got started on the lagoon work and made an excellent start on a fish and invertebrate library identifying more than 30 species of fish alone.
