Today these dolphins are one of the best-explored teams in the entire Mediterranean.

The dimension of the area is estimated at 120 people. A lot of the people can be identified by photographs thanks to all-natural marks such as cuts as well as marks on their back fin, the component which is constantly to be seen when they appear to the surface area to breath the air.

There are lots of hazards to Cres-Lošinj dolphin population. Pleasure boating can physically block their movements whilst engine noise may interrupt their navigational detects.

Although among the most resistant and adaptable cetacean, great dolphins are progressively dying out in lots of parts of the world. The deliberate killing and also unintentional catch in fishing-nets represent an evident risk.
