Winter #Bilan your observations

Return on your unwavering commitment in Winter, a very interesting time of year for usBecause this period remains largely unknown : Indeed there less output in winter, so less data collected. The data are very useful to the different work of researchers! The participation of boaters is paramountEspecially in winter when data are missing and where they are the only ones to significantly move things by being on the ground!
You have forwarded us fifty reporting this winter, Including: 25 dolphins, whales and sperm whales 14, 5 jellyfish, 1 mobula skate, 1 leatherback turtle, penguin torda 1, 17 pelagic fish ...

The success of this app is only due to your involvement. Feel free to talk about OBSenMER around!

Interview Gael Evans:

How did you hear about the program Cybelle Mediterranean? What gave you the desire to contribute?

"If I remember correctly I ran an advertisement for Cybelle Mediterranean in a magazine. Having completed studies in Zoology and Environmental Biology in Britain I was always ambitious to work in the middle of the conservation or protection animal. I found myself working on private yachts in the Riviera by default. This is an industry that does not always have the best environmental values ​​but has potential in the middle of the census that is not negligible. J 'always tries to introduce the concepts of environmental with my coworkers hoping a good example can limit the environmental damage caused by this industry. I have long sought a way to contribute is in medium ideal for cetacean sightings so I was delighted to find the Mediterranean Cybelle operation there are now a few years.

You are an experienced user of the OBSenMER application. What do you particularly like this tool?

The new application has greatly facilitated the transmission of information. Being on a boat where wireless access may be limited application made my task more enjoyable by its ergonomics. Can enter the data during the transition and download it all to my arrival in port. The ability to create continuous observations is a real asset because at last I sent anything if I had not seen what happens more often than one would imagine. Without this information the data would be false if it only saves the data 'positive' information.

Do you feel actively involved in the protection of biodiversity when using OBSenMER application? And why ?

By working in the environment, volunteer services like this allow to deepen our natural knowledge and actively participate in our biodiversity. Furthermore I took the opportunity to educate the rest of my crew to likewise transmit my observations helped by the OBSenMER identification cards. I noticed a greater interest in wildlife that one crosses from it, either to whales or myths that are based on our windows ...

And your most beautiful marine observation? (Or the most significant?)

Since working on boats, memories of striking observations are numerous. Of the many pods of dolphins that are active in our bow, the Pilot whales attempting the same stunt with less success, turtles sleeping with seagulls resting on their shells or asleep sunfish. However my two favorite memories should be observing whales jumping in the east of Sardinia or the passage of two whales near the middle of a quiet night and hear their breaths ... "

We warmly thank Gael Evans for his testimony.
