#118: Adrien is a bottlenose dolphin that PWF researchers first encountered in 2000, in a group with 3 other dolphins. Through the years this dolphin has been seen nine more times with the most recent sighting in January 2021. #118 has been observed interacting with humpback whales during two of the most recent sightings in 2020 and 2021. In those encounters the research team was able to collect drone footage of the whales and dolphins that will be used to assess the animals’ body conditions.
