Dutch harbour porpoises counted

This video is called Harbour Porpoise Species Identification.

Translated from the Dutch cetacean researchers of Stichting Rugvin:

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

On Sunday, September 28, 2014, volunteers of Stichting Rugvin counted 34 harbour porpoises in the National Park Oosterschelde.

Around half past ten in the morning thirty volunteers departed aboard eight ships in line to the eastern part of the Oosterschelde. Nowhere else in the world the number of porpoises is counted in this way. During the scan, there was not much wind, so the animals were easy to find. A total of 34 porpoises were observed, including at least three mother and calf pairs.
