Tethys research in the Amvrakikos Gulf featured in New Scientist


A couple of weeks ago, the online news editor from the renowned New Scientist Magazine – Rowan Hooper – joined the ‘Dolphins of Greece’ Project in the Amvrakikos Gulf.

Hooper, thanks to an EarthWatch initiative, had the opportunity to spend nine days shoulder-to-shoulder with Tethys’ researchers Joan Gonzalvo and Iva Popovic.

After this experience, Hooper wrote an article about the dolphins situation in the Amvrakikos Gulf and in the waters surrounding the island of Kalamos, where Tethys is studying dolphins since 1991.
