Pico Island in the Atlantic Ocean has been Karin Hartman’s home since 1999, where she moved to study the unknown Risso’s dolphin in the Azores. The unique marine habitat in European waters is filled with Atlantic-spotted dolphins, false killer whales, sperm whales, and Atlantic humpback whales, but with their large dorsal fins, Risso’s Dolphins are unlike any other mammals found here. Packed with spectacular underwater and drone shots of these dolphins that explains their unique behaviors, Hartman also makes the case for why commercial swimming with these dolphins should be banned.
