Sousa teuszii, Atlantic humpback dolphin, Gabon, Survey
A new research and conservation initiative on Atlantic humpback dolphins off the coast of Gabon was started in 2002. Following recommendations made at the meeting of the International Whaling Commission’ s Scientific Committee in 2002, opportunistic surveys for Atlantic humpback dolphins (Sousa teuszii) on the coast of Gabon were completed. Three new sightings are reported and additional incidental data compiled. Plans for further work in 2004 are described.
