An extraordinary feeling / 17.03.2008

On my first trip with firmm I saw three different marine mammals in the Strait of Gibraltar. The day started with sunshine and a good mood on board. Every one was very excited to see the animals in the wild. First we saw a school of Pilot Whales with two calves, soon joined by the big Bottlenose Dolphins. We were very lucky to see them jumping, spyhopping and tailslapping. It felt very good to see their stunts in freedom, not in a delfinarium where the animals are living under very bad conditions.
I will never forget this feeling of seeing the dolphins really wild and free.
On our way back some Striped Dolphins joined us, too.
I think I am very lucky that I can do something for these wonderful animals with my work here with firmm.
