Friday Feature Photo: The Majestic Dolphins of Spain

Dolphin Valle Gran Rey, Canary Islands

Photographer: Wolfgang Staudt

Capture Date: February 24, 2012

Location: Valle Gran Rey, Canary Islands, Spain

About: Marine life of the Canary Islands include the Short-Finned Pilot Whale, as well as the Common and Bottlenose dolphins. Vagrant Hooded Seals also appear every now and again. However, it’s the Alboran Sea – the transition zone between the Mediterranean and Atlantic – that has the largest population of Bottlenose Dolphins in the western Mediterranean. It’s home to the last population of harbour porpoises in the Mediterranean, and is the most important feeding grounds for Loggerhead Sea Turtles in Europe.
