    David Day

David DayDavid was born in Bermuda, and has always had an affinity with Islands and the sea. He has been taking wildlife photos since he was 9, and has a degree in zoology from Reading University. He worked as the biologist at Kafue National Park, Zambia for 2 years and then lived in the Galapagos from 1971 to 2001, where his work as a tour guide gave him ample opportunity to photograph the wildlife, scenery and geology, both on land and underwater. He spent much of his spare time there helping scientists with their field work, including cetacean research teams. He has spent a few years total on cetacean research boats, both in Galapagos and across the Pacific Ocean.  He became an expert on cetaceans of the Islands, and has written a paper on the species present in the Galapagos, and a number of other papers on their cetaceans. His time there also gave him opportunities to work in areas such as the Amazon, Falklands, Antarctica and tropical Pacific, as well as experience as a film cameraman with film crews from the BBC, ABC US and Australia, Partridge, NDR etc. Since 2001 he has been based back in the UK in Devon, and has been filming the behaviour of interactive (‘friendly or solitary sociable’) dolphins in Europe, including Dave, Dusty, Dony and Jean Floch is dedicated to giving accurate information about 'friendly' or sociable wild dolphins (and whales) around the coastal waters of Ireland - i.e., those cetaceans who from time to time choose to interact with humans.. Dolphins include Fungie the Dingle Dolphin, Dony and Dusty.
