There have been frequent sightings of dolphins in the Lošinj Archipelago during the past two weeks, more specifically of mother dolphins and their calves, reports the Blue World Institute from Veli Lošinj on its Facebook page.

We bring you the full statement and photos taken by the team of experts and volunteers working for the Blue World Institute:

“We noticed small fins of the newborn calves awkwardly sufarcing along the two female dolphins which we know very well – Anna and Lovra, swimming together in a large group along the western shore of Silba island. We also spotted Jeff and her many calves all together, which was particulary interesting to us! Jeff and her baby were swimming along two of Jeff’s other young calves from 2011 and 2013, who are now fully-grown. It was a real pleasure to observe the whole family swimming together.This encounter delighted our eco-volunteers from far Malesia who, for the first time in their lives, watched dolphins in their natural environment. They were also very helpful and collected valuable scientific data. This was indeed a very unique experience for them, as can be seen in the photos we’d like to share with you!”








By sharing this lovely story with everyone, The Blue World Institute invites you to celebrate the 25th Dolphin Day in Veli Lošinj this weekend.
