TWENDE had a baby!

By 6 years ago
Categories Shimoni

The GVI Marine team is happy to announce that TWENDE dolphin is a mom!

Twende is the number 004 of our catalogue and she is regularly seen by the research team socializing and feeding in the Kisite Mpunguti Marine Park.

She was never seen next to a calf since the research has started in 2006 so we believed Twende was a male dolphin. Pictures taken last week, on the 27th January 2010, show Twende next to a new calf. The two never separated during our 30 minute sighting, and have shown a lot of interaction like rubbing and breast feeding.

For all of you; ex GVI staff or volunteers that remember seeing Twende, current or future GVI volunteers, we wanted to share this smile with you! Enjoy!
