We know Edu since October 18th, 2010. He is a very special Pilot Whale: His distinctive instinct to protect his group is enormous.
For some time, Edu seemed to have set himself the task of protecting Curro, who was severely injured by a ship's propeller in 2008. One day we witnessed how Edu used his fluke to hit the wound directly to clean it - unbelievable! After that Curro always stayed at Edu's side. The two had become inseparable friends - until Curro died in 2013.
Take over a symbolic sponsorship and support our research and educational work. Together we can achieve a more responsible attitude towards the oceans.
This is how we have experienced Edu since the beginning of our adoption program:
Edu, a big male, we saw very often. He sets the tone; therefore he is the "pilot" in his family.
As the pilot of a large family, Edu is usually in the middle of everything and you get the feeling that he takes good care of his family.
We have seen Edu in various groups. He seems to be a unifying and harmonizing big male. We had already noticed this when he stood by the now deceased Curro for a long time.
His instinct to protect his group is still enormous. We have seen Edu 35 times, most often in July.
