Pelagic Trip – July 26: The First release at sea!
On our third organized excursion we had the privilege to invite some members of the following project: Proyecto Golondrina de la Tempestad de Collar: www.golondrinatempestad.org, a project that started in 2009 with the main objective of rescuing oceanic birds that are found disoriented in urban areas in Lima city. For all of us it was a very special day because it was the first time that two Wedge-rumped Storm-petrels were release in the ocean at 30 miles from the coast. It was a good day, not because we were witnesses of this event, but also because we saw two groups of Humpback whales, more than six individuals of Waved Albatrosses and several species of storm-petrels all around us and welcoming this two new bird mates. After this experience we have decide to help and provide the opportunity to repeat these actions in future excursions.
