We recently saw three new calves during our routine humpback dolphin surveys! Although humpback dolphins can give birth throughout the year, there is a peak in the calving period during the summer months from December to February. The calves are born at a length of around 1m and are pale grey in colour. They may remain closely associated with their mothers for up to four years after their birth. We hope to encounter these youngsters again in the months to come and that they will grow up to become a valuable contribution to the local population of this endangered species.
