Dolphins playing with a blue whale off Galician coast (NW Spain)

The Research team of The Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute (BDRI) was recently lucky to caught what we described as an “incredibly magic aquatic moment” when a group of common dolphins start to ride a blue whale.

Riding a whale may serves multiple purposes for dolphins, but that does not preclude dolphins having fun also. By showing these beautiful moments with all of you, our aim is to encourage our governments to apply conservation measurements and adequate management of human activities in these waters.
