Our latest publication is out!  With the help of Dr. Caroline Weir, we have used a combination of photo-identification data and Shorewatch data to demonstrate the importance of the proposed MPA of east Lewis for Risso's dolphins.  Shorewatch data helped to prove that Risso's are present year-round and that calves are present in these waters in the spring and summer months.  Photo-ID has shown us that individuals return to the area through a given year and across many years within the study; this is known as site fidelity.  Read the attached pdf for the full story!
