The Risso’s dolphin of the Gulf of Corinth
“Yaya” is the only Risso’s dolphin in the Gulf of Corinth, Greece. She lives with striped dolphins and common dolphins in a unique multi-species society. Long ago, Yaya must have managed to survive a shark attack: she still carries a large wound on the right side of her body. The wound has completely healed. We studied Yaya for a decade, and it’s been terrific.
