I visited Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas da Amazônia (INPA) and had the meeting with colleagues.
Next I visited Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve.
In Mamirauá SDR, the clicks and vocalization of free-ranging population of Amazon river dolphins were recorded by the stereo acoustic data loggers which were set at three points.
And I conducted census survey and visual observation in the field site.
Finally, I visited Punta Arenas, Chile.
In Punta Arenas, the clicks of commerson's dolphin were recorded by same system.
I succeed to get plenty of data throughout this trip and achieved the objective of this trip.
