Reading in Covid-19 Times During the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, we have not been going out on the water in compliance with Spanish lockdown regulations and for the safety of our team members and island residents. In addition to our data analysis work, we have stayed busy with a couple of fun on-shore activities like reading in Covid-19 times. We would like to share with you some of our land-based activities!

What Do Marine Biologists Do Now that They Are Stranded on Land? Amid the current Covid-19 crisis, BIOSEAN ceased all tours and surveys in compliance with the Spanish government’s lockdown guidelines and for the safety of our guests and team members. We were happy to do our part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and to protect the residents of Tenerife, the island we call “our home”. Unfortunately, this means we have not been out on the water at all during these past few months. So, what do marine biologists do now? what is it we do exactly?

Whale Watching Marine Science

Mundo Marino, Sin categoría
[caption id="attachment_1867" align="alignright" width="225"] A participant helping out on data collection.[/caption] BIOSEAN is a project that combines whale watching and marine sciences in Tenerife, through the participation of people (citizen science), students and researchers. Every day we go out to sea with two main objectives: to collect scientific data from our whale watching tours, and to show our clients the wonders of southern Tenerife, with an educational approach, respect for local fauna, conservation, and dissemination of the marine ecosystem. Our research is largely funded through whale watching tours, but we also receive research funds through agreements signed with universities and research centers. These studies allow us to understand marine fauna, and especially cetaceans, thus having useful tools to propose management, conservation and dissemination measures for the marine environment. Our whale…
