Riverpark resident Akuna, seen with a newborn

Our most recognisable resident dolphin Akuna, has been spotted with a newborn calf! 

The first sighting was reported by Dolphin Watch volunteer, Sue Harper, who took the beautiful picture below in late June. Intitially we couldnt be sure if the calf belog to Akuna as she was observed socialising and fishing with the "mums group" which included Claw and Bobby, Moon and Nganga and Daniele and her new calf. but after another sighting, research scientist Delphine Chabanne confirmed that Akuna does in fact have a new calf!
