Project Report | Apr 28, 2014
A New Digital Sound Recorder

By Sophie Birkett | Head of Operations, Charitable Trust

Dear Supporter, 

I hope this report finds you well. During the April instance of the GVI Spinner Dolphin Research project, the research team spent 9 days recording dolphin behavior on Moon Reef. A new digital sound recorder, funded by the GVI Charitable Trust and your donations, improved the quality of the hydrophone recordings that we made during this phase and have subsequently been added to Whale and Dolphin Conservation’s data collection. The eight researchers were able to capture photos and record data to a high standard on most days despite some rough weather and choppy seas. It was very interesting to note that the Dolphin Pod Behavior was significantly impacted by the presence of large shoals of Tuna on the outer reefs, impacting that pods normal hunting and rest patterns. Whilst this would be assumed, being able to record this data greatly assisting with Dolphin Conservation efforts in the region. 

Thank you for continuing to support this project. 

All the best

GVI Fiji
