The season 2020 has ended

The summer holidays are over and Tarifa's streets have been empty since the beginning of September. We have therefore also closed down for this year.

Despite the short season we had many special sightings. We hope that the situation will become normal by the next season and can't wait to take you out to see the whales again from the 26th of March 2021 on.

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

Pedro

We know Pedro since September 1st, 2012. Pedro is a full grown male, but not very tall. He is relatively easy to recognize by his 2 notches on his dorsal fin.

He seems to be a friendly Pilot Whale, because he is always accompanied. Pedro is well guarded in the family of Edu and often accompanies Baby Hook when she curiously passes under our boat.

Adopt Pedro

Take over a symbolic sponsorship and support our research and educational work. Together we can achieve a more responsible treatment of the oceans.

This is how we have experienced Pedro since the beginning of our adoption program:

2015

From this year on Pedro can be adopted. He lives well protected in the family of Edu, and we often see him together with Baby Hook.

2017

Pedro often accompanies the family of Baby Hook. He is trustful and likes to swim under the boat.

2018

We sighted Pedro 35 times, always simultaneously with Baby Hook. He seems to be a friendly Pilot Whale, because he is always accompanied. Pedro is well protected in the family of Edu and often accompanies Baby Hook when she curiously passes under our boat.
