This year, between July 18th and August 8th researchers of Fundación Cethus are conducting fieldwork in the city of Miramar, as part of the project "Study and conservation of the southern right whale (Eubalaena australis), in the waters of the Municipality of General Alvarado and surrounding areas in the province of Buenos Aires".
With the aim to study the behavior and acoustically record franciscanas and bottlenose dolphins, members of Fundación Cethus conducted fieldwork in the Río Negro Estuary (RNE) during late June 2015. With this we conclude a stage of the project that for us has had very rewarding results. We have developed a free access acoustic tool “Pontoporia Acoustic Detector” which in the future may be used to evaluate size and population structure of the franciscana, the most endangered dolphin in the Southwestern Atlantic.
