Here we go again!

From July 1st on we will sail out again to the whales and dolphins. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon and wish you already now a relaxing holiday. You will find information about the necessary hygiene and safety measures under observation tours.

See you soon in Tarifa, Katharina Heyer and the firmm team

Lola

We first noticed the female Pilot Whale Lola at the end of May 2018 when she had a small rectangular wound in the middle of her dorsal fin, which unfortunately grew quite quickly.

In June and July the injury was already severely infected and gave cause for concern. In October the inflammation decreased a little, but the fin is almost split in two with a conspicuous hole in the middle. During the whole time she was accompanied and protected by the big Pilot Whale male Gorro.

Adopt Lola

Through research and information we want to draw attention to the situation of the dolphins in the Strait of Gibraltar and contribute to raising awareness. Thank you for supporting us with a symbolic sponsorship!

2018

At the end of May we noticed Lola for the first time. She had a small rectangular wound in the middle of her dorsal fin. Unfortunately the wound got bigger quite fast. In June and July the injury was so badly infected that it gave us cause for concern. In October the inflammation decreased a bit, but since then the fin looks almost divided in two with a conspicuous hole in the middle. During the whole time she was accompanied and protected by the big Pilot Whale male Gorro. We wish Lola a good recovery and hope to meet her again in spring 2019!
