Together with Menorca Preservation, we funded research carried out by Tursiops Marine Research on an area north of Menorca. The findings confirmed that the area is indeed being used as a breeding and nursing area for the endangered Mediterranean sperm whales and needs to be included into the Spanish Marine Protected Area (MPA) programme.
Tursiops Marine Research, an organisation created in 1998, confronts the conservation challenges of Mediterranean cetacean populations. They believe that the best way to fight for the protection, conservation and sustainability of cetacean populations in the Mediterranean is through science. They conduct rigorous research on cetacean populations in the Balearic Islands, so that management measures can be based on scientific knowledge.
