{Update} AMAPPS Surveys Complete!

We have finished the last of our AMAPPS surveys (Atlantic Marine Assessment Program for Protected Species) and they were very successful! I am still astounded that we managed to cover so much ocean in a Beaufort 3 or less in the middle of a New England winter! We saw lots of seals and a wide variety of cetaceans (harbor porpoise, common dolphins, white-sided dolphins, Risso's dolphins, pilot whales, minke whales, sei whales, and fin whales).

As we headed back to Cape Cod at the end of the flight, there were some gorgeous patterns in the sand at low tide...
