Rare White Risso’s Dolphin

Rare White Risso's Dolphin

ADVERTISEMENTS



Against all odds, a juvenile albino Risso’s dolphin has been spotted in the wild again after it was last seen as a baby back in 2015.

This super-rare white dolphin was spotted in the waters off Monterey Bay in California last week by Kate Cummings of Blue Ocean Whale Watch. She quickly made contact with researchers from Marine Life Studies, who currently study the population dynamics of Risso’s dolphins, to help her confirm it was the same albino calf and mother she documented two years ago in September of 2015. The pair has now been cataloged with an ID to help track their whereabouts in the future.
