The Cetacean Sanctuary
Maurizio Wurtz speaks to us of the Ligurian coasts and of all that area inhabited by whales and sperm whales that extends as far as Sardinia. We discover that the structure of the sea is particular, since there is no continental shelf and this means that the depth of the sea reaches 2000 metres and that the water turnover is very fast. Hence there are optimal conditions for the survival of the cetacean.
To sight the whales you just have to look at the horizon. As soon as they are sighted it is important to respect them, that is to say to switch off motors, and not to disturb them or interrupt their passage. The fact is that if they are disturbed they are dangerous animal: even a small movement of the tail can capsize the boat, so it is better to be careful.
