home about us research outreach areas publications

We are biologists and marine conservation experts committed to preserving marine biodiversity and reducing human impacts on cetaceans, with emphasis on the Mediterranean.

We produce publications and disseminate science-based information with a focus on factors threatening dolphins and marine life. We study and monitor dolphin populations to assess abundance, detect trends and identify important habitat.

We organize and co-teach marine biology courses and seminars, conduct education and capacity building programmes, supervise students and young researchers, and let them join us in the field.

Finally, through a variety of initiatives and media, we raise awareness on the importance of protecting the marine environment.
