Peru Project – Day 6
Young Explorers Blog – Day 6
Since we didn’t see any whales yesterday, we felt luck was on our side when we woke up to the magnificent sound of humpbacks jumping amongst the calmness of the Pacific. After a nice conversation with passionate conservationist and researcher, Sebastian Silva, we boarded his boat and learned how to photo identify whales from their caudal fins. Our prayers were definitely heard as sea lions, dolphins, and green turtles also graced us with their presence.
On the way back, we took a road through the Peruvian dessert, and passed by the first eolic energy park in the country. We reached Rosemary’s pet shelter “Asociación Humanitaria San Francisco de Asís” in Colan, where various pet species are saved on a daily basis, using a very small income, thanks to the work of international and local volunteers.
