Testimony of JSOUBI for the mission Expeditions in the sanctuary Pelagos: study of Cetaceans and Biodiversity, France

Mission of 7 days done in June 2019

My participation

The mission consisted in the observation and daily counting of our environment in the Mediterranean: mammals (dolphins, whales, sperm whales ..) fish, turtles, jellyfish, birds, waste ... by teams of 3 on quarter periods of 2 hours. Telemetry binoculars and a cellular iPad for live collection of observations. While one part of the team observes, the other has various occupations (preparation meal, dishes, rest, reading, navigation ...)

My expectations

A great experience, every day animals to see, photograph ...
Thanks to our great ecoguide (Colin), we learned a lot about marine life in the Mediterranean, and with our skipper on sailing sailing.
A great atmosphere in the team during 1 week

My advice

Think to take anti-seasicky medoc just in case, effective sunglasses, hat, caps, snorkel masks, frontal, portable cigarette lighter charger. Polar and 1 rainwear

What I retain

See and get to know the marine mammals of the Mediterranean and other animals
Learn navigation skills and maneuvers on sailboat
