Dear MARMAM¹ers,

WDCS has launched its new online species guide (see below) and would like to
take this opportunity to say a huge THANK-YOU to all of you who kindly
donated images to be used within!! We couldn¹t have done it without you and
greatly appreciate your help!

And so my next request is for Phase 2 ­ we¹re going to be looking for
acoustics and video ... So if you have any then you know who to get in touch

Thanks again and we hope you enjoy the new Guide!


Launch of world¹s most comprehensive guide to whales and dolphins highlights
the many mysteries that still remain

The most comprehensive on-line guide to whales and dolphins is launched this
week following over a year¹s painstaking work by researchers at the Whale
and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS), which ironically, along with a
number of fascinating facts, has revealed exactly how little we humans still
know about these magnificent creatures.

The guide, which is of particular use to students, researchers, the tourist
trade, and journalists comes in three languages, and provides interesting
and easy to use insights into the creature¹s habitats, behaviour, and where
to find them. It also features 80 maps, over 400 images, a threat index
(which highlights the level of danger facing each species). To have a look
for yourself, go to http://www2.wdcs.org/species/index.php
