Vaquita na robu izumrtja

Vaquiti, najbolj redkemu morskemu sesalcu na svetu, grozi izumrtje.

To ne pomeni, da moramo to sprejeti. To je trenutek, da dvignemo svoje glasove in ukrepamo po svojih najboljših močeh za rešitev te vrste.



Vse o tej temi si lahko ogledate v kratkem videu spodaj:

The vaquita is on the brink of extinction

The vaquita, the world’s rarest marine mammal, is approaching imminent extinction.

This does not mean that we should accept this outcome. This is the moment where we all raise our voices and take action in order to do more than our best in trying to save this species.



Here is a video that explains everything about this:

MORIGENOS AT THE 32nd CONFERENCE OF THE EUROPEAN CATEACEAN SOCIETY

At the 32nd conference of the European Cetacean Society in Italian La Spezia, Morigenos once again took active part in the conference. Four of our team members attended various workshops and the conference, where Tilen Genov presented a talk "Evaluating the population-level effects of cryptic events on a coastal dolphin population".


Two posters were also presented. The first poster presented on a "Severe jaw injury in a common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) from the Gulf of Trieste, the northern Adriatic Sea", with Ana Hace as the lead author. The second poster, titled "First assessment of organochlorine levels in three different cetacean species in the Greek Ionian Sea" was presented in co-authorship with other researchers, led by Guia Consales from the University of Siena.



At the end of the conference, Tilen Genov received The Mandy McMath Conservation Award 2018 from the European Cetacean Society, for an outstanding contribution to the field of marine mammal conservation. You can read more about the award ceremony and award itself here.

Prvi je bil poster z naslovom "Huda poškodba čeljusti pri veliki pliskavki (Tursiops truncatus) iz Tržaškega zaliva v severnem Jadranu (Severe jaw injury in a common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) from the Gulf of Trieste, northern Adriatic Sea)", prve avtorice Ane Hace.

15 let nazaj so bili ti delfini med prvimi foto-identificiranimi v slovenskem morju



Danes mineva natanko 15 let od dneva, ko smo prvič spoznali in fotografirali delfine Morigenos, Deinon, Foki, Alenka in Wit. Ti delfini so bili med prvimi foto-identificiranimi delfini v slovenskem morju ali Tržaškem zalivu. Prvič smo jih srečali 30. marca 2003, v Mesečevem zalivu, med Izolo in Strunjanom. Te delfine še vedno redno videvamo in nanje gledamo kot na stare prijatelje. Upamo, da jih bomo videvali še mnogo let! Z vami delimo nekaj starih fotografij, ki so bile takrat posnete še na film!

15 YEARS AGO THESE WERE AMONG THE FIRST DOLPHINS TO EVER BE PHOTO-IDENTIFIED ALONG THE SLOVENIAN COAST


   




On this day, exactly 15 years ago, we first met and photographed dolphins Morigenos Deinon, Foki, Alenka and Wit. These were among the first dolphins to ever be photo-identified along the Slovenian coast or in the Gulf of Trieste. We first encountered them on 30 March 2003 in Moon Bay, between Izola and Strunjan, Slovenia. We still regularly see these dolphins, and consider them our old friends. We hope to keep encountering them for many years to come! We share with you some old photos, which at that time were still taken on film!
