Last Saturday, 25th of July, the 9th Dolphin Day took place in Piran. People of all ages came to visit the event from all over Slovenia.
Our info-point at Tartini Square was very lively during the whole day. Visitors had a lot of questions about dolphins and the Slovenian sea in general. Morigenos gained a few new supportive members and through the campaign "Adopt a dolphin" our dolphins got a few new “godfathers” and “godmothers” to support Morigenos.
Children had great fun with the workshops we prepared for them where they could drew and paint dolphins of all kinds. We also received good feedback for the two exhibitions we prepared on Tartini Square. Visitors enjoyed the lectures we gave about our research work and the interesting facts about dolphins of the Slovenian sea, organized on two boat trips with the boat Solinarka. This year we also organized visits to the Piran bell tower where Morigenos researchers presented the land based research procedures in short lectures.
In the evening we offered our visitors a great rock concert performed by the bands Charlie Butter Fly from Kočevje and the Eclipse of Time from neighbouring Croatia.
As a special guest we invited Klemen Bunderla to join us at the event. He also became a godfather to one of our dolphins – for one year Kai will keep him company.
