Blustery conditions and poor visibility did little to dampen the spirits of the Kangaroo Island artists who put to sea on a special field survey to celebrate KI Dolphin Watchâ€™s 6th birthday on March 8th 2012. The trip organised by volunteer Sandy Carey, was a long overdue thankyou for the artists who generously supported fund raising efforts through the â€œShared Realmâ€ Dolphin Watch Exhibition. Sandy was the prime mover in making this wonderful example of community support come to pass and it was fitting that Fleur Peters of Fine Art KI, who collaborated with Sandy on the successful exhibition was one of the crew. Fleur and Fred Peters very kindly continue to support KI Dolphin Watch and promote the project and its core business. All on board were delighted by a series of sightings, culminating in a very close up and personal encounter with eleven very curious dolphins. A wonderful way to say thankyou and celebrate an auspicious birthday.
In the near future Kangaroo Island Community Education students and volunteers will also have the opportunity to celebrate this significant milestone, and sincere thanks to everyone involved in the project.
