Ocean Sounds is a independent non-profit organization (registered in Germany as Ocean Sounds e.V. number: VR721563) which finances all research and education programs with private donations and small grants from other organizations.

Our research focuses on biology & conservation of marine mammals in areas in the world with a high biodiversity. This vital research contributes to knowledge and protection of unique and important marine ecosystems.
Tourism, Fishing/hunting activities, Oil & Mineral exploration, as well as Climate Change demands our scientific understanding of the consequences on the marine environment!

Important Note:

Since 2011 we cannot invite tourists on our boat trips anymore, because the laws for our boat has changed and we are not allowed to. This means a huge cut in our financial income, which makes donations and sponsorship ever more important.

Please take a few minutes and think about it, we hope you do care about Marine Mammals and their marine habitat and you would like to support our projects that aim at protection & conservation of whales & dolphins around the world.


Thank you for your kind and essential support,
