Marine Mammal Science & Conservation

Activities 2020

From 18 to 26 January we participated in “the boot”, the big convention in Düsseldorf at the „love-your-ocean“ stand.

Together with many other environmental protection organisations we presented our work on a small island in the middle of this commercial fair! Our goal was to present Ocean Sounds and give a voice to the whales and dolphins and help the protection of the ocean togther with all the other organisations, which was an initiative of the German Ocean Foundation to save the ocean!

We launched our Whale Sound Library for the first time – it was a success!

Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak in Germany, all our events got cancelled for now, but we will reschedule as soon as possible, for now erybody stay healthy!
