The last 4 moths have been quite boring for the cetaceans around Madeira as they had no boats to play with. But they were not the only ones bored with all this SARS-Cov-2 situation. Even looking out from land was not as successful as when we are running the whale watching trips! During this confinement period the only species observed from land on the southeast of Madeira were:
Sperm whale Physeter macrocephalus
Bryde's whale Balaenoptera edeni
Short-finned pilot whale Globicephala macrorhynchus
Common Bottlenose dolphin Tursiops truncatus
Atlantic spotted dolphin Stenella frontalis
