Bobby and Nicola enjoying the moment

One of the original Dolphin Watch student leaders for several years, Bobby Hale, returned to KI recently to visit family with his UK girlfriend Nicola, a fellow dolphin lover. On Sunday 15th May they joined other community members on a field survey to North Cape. A group of atleast 26 dolphins including four juveniles frolicked and cavorted around the boat in very light conditions allowing for excellent photographic ID work. Two known animals were easily identified; 007F Kimba and 334 Tiki, both monitored during Bobby’s involvement. A great welcome home to Bobby who was a very active participant, excellent role model and mentor, introducing the Dolphin Watch programme to mainland schools.
