Gardline MMOs Provide Proof of Blue Whale Sightings off Kenyan Coast.
Gardline’s MMOs publish data revealing the first live at-sea sightings of blue whales in Kenyan waters. This invaluable data was collected during an offshore seismic project between September 2014 and January 2015 and information has been published in the African Journal of Marine Science. This study shows the valuable information that MMOs with support from our clients can contribute to the global conservation of marine mammals.
