Photos from a month of cetacean research around Ningaloo reef in northwest Australia, with time spent working out of Coral Bay and Exmouth. The objective was to locate and biopsy sample as many humpback and bottlenose dolphins as possible. The samples will undergo genetic analyses to provide information on the population structure, and permit comparisons with sampled animals from other parts of their distribution.
