The beauty of doing ocean research, encountering many wild and free dolphins! Our hypothesis is that because of COVID-19 there is a huge decrease of tourists, which means a huge decrease in dolphin watching, which leads to a more humane way of dolphin watching, no hunting, less ocean noise. On these two days of research we have seen bigger and several groups of dolphins coming out more than ever. This was the exact reason for us to make noise measurements now, so we can later compare this to post COVID-19 dolphin watching. We will further analyse the results and report back later.
