Partnership Opportunities

Important Note:

Since 2011 we cannot invite tourists on our boat trips in Norway 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,
