Bottlenose Dolphin Sightings for April and May 2009

Written by Keith_Rittmaster. Posted in Uncategorized

In this picture the sliver of land behind the dolphins and water is Shackleford Banks where we see a lot of dolphins. Shackleford is unihabited by humans.
Bottlenose dolphin sightings for month of April 2009 in both the ocean and estruary under Keith’s research permit are:
4 days out on water
6 separate sightings and
73 total individual dolphins
and for May 2009


6 days on the water
7 separate sightings and
46 individual dolphins.
In May there were 10 dead neonates on NC beaches which is a record high but we have seen 2 live ones with moms in Beaufort so far and we expect there will be more.
