Medio Siglo, a young animal four years old or less, was the first whale which had a satellite transmitter attached this season. This individual did not delay his exit from the gulf and after leaving headed directly east at a steady rate until he crossed the continental slope. He then turned south and arrived at the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) on October 14. In one month he traveled more than 1,300 kilometers. Sadly contact was lost with Medio Siglo one day after he had reached the waters surrounding the islands.
