Observing Marine Mammals from Marion Dufresne

"A flash of light catches my eye and I raise my binoculars to check it out. A dolphin perhaps? Or a basking turtle? I search until I spot it again. The object is bobbing high in the water, doing a little dance in the light breeze. It is a stick." Dr Rebecca Jewell reflects on her experience as a Marine Mammal Observer on board R/V Marion Dufresne.
