home about us research outreach areas publications

We raise awareness and disseminate information through scientific publications, encyclopedia entries, popular articles, opinion papers, video documentaries, nature photography, interviews and various digital media.

We manage a Video Channel where we post short videos and documentaries, and a Facebook page where we post photos and news.

Our suggestions on becoming a cetacean researcher can be viewed HERE.

We have been raising public and institutional awareness in a variety of ways, presenting our work to audiences including students, teachers and fishing communities.

We involved people from around the world in dolphin research programmes, letting them know about cetacean research methods and ways of contributing to marine conservation.


Through marine biology field courses, internships and research assistantships, we hosted a number of students and young scientists at our field stations, training and encouraging them to conduct conservation-oriented studies with a focus on marine mammals. In addition, we provided thesis supervision in collaboration with several Universities in Italy and abroad. Capacity building and education activities have included cetacean conservation workshops, seminars and marine biology courses organized in collaboration with Texas A&M University and OceanCare.

We regularly organise presentations at primary and secondary schools, high schools and universities, to make young generations aware of the need to protect dolphins and marine biodiversity.
