Omschrijving van de beoordeling

WeWhale is the first organization worldwide building a complete noise and emission-free whale observation fleet to create awareness for these majestic animals.

Our project aims to create awareness for cetaceans by doing observation and investigation excursions. Further we do accoustic studies and photo identification reports to get a better understanding of the cetacean populations within our research area. Our guests on board will be informed about whale and dolphin species and the conservation efforts done from our side and everyone could do to protect those majestic animals.

Once on land again we follow up with data gathered out on the sea to convert them into useful infomation to create awareness.

In addition to our whale and dolphin observation excursions, we actively develop dedicated conservation initiatives, such as the Save the Iberian Orca surveillance campaign, which we initiated.

Furthermore we generate data for an application to avoid ship strikes (collisions with cetaceans) and are currently working on the first European whale & dolphin sanctuary to combat the captive whale and dolphin industry.
