Porpoises in Dutch Oosterschelde estuary

This is a harbor porpoise video.

According to Dutch NOS TV, thirty harbour porpoises live in the Dutch Oosterschelde estuary; including five calves. Later this year, it will be investigated whether these porpoises will swim through the partly open Oosterschelde storm surge barrier to the North Sea.
