A few things cetacean

1. Apparently, a breeding area of pygmy right whales has been located: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.2989/1814232X.2013.769903#.UZRqEsqNDbQ

2. There is a nice listserve called Marmam where interesting topics like the one above come up sometimes: https://lists.uvic.ca/pipermail/marmam/

3. I might be able to organize a July pelagic trip to the dropoff area south of Mississippi Delta. The price would be around $100-150. The area is not Beagle Channel and there might be nothing to see at all, but over the years people have recorded some really cool stuff including all species of sperm whales, huge herds of short-finned pilot whales, all spp. of Stenella, Bryde’s whales, beaked whales, etc. Would anybody be interested?

    I would make an effort to do that trip, Vladimir. Thanks for the link to the listserve, very interesting.

      Please email Erik Johnson, ejohnson at audubon.org
      He is in charge of organizing the trip now.

    Update: the cost will more likely be $175-200 🙁
    I might be able to guide a quick search for land mammals, too, but frankly there’s not much to reliably see around here, just widespread spp. like swamp rabbit and fox squirrel.

      Are there dates set for this yet?

        No. You can email Erik and ask him to add you to the email list, in case the date gets set when I’m abroad.

    I would be interested if I was going to be in New Zealand all of July

      It might be in June or August. Just email Erik (see above) and ask to be added to the email list for the trip.
