To Promote the Fascinating Lives of Minke Whales

The Swiss-Canadian research organisation ORES (Ocean Research and Education Society) just launched their new website to share their tremendous knowledge on the biology and ecology of minke whales. ORES' researchers believe that it is their obligation to share their passion with the global public in order to contribute to the conservation and protection not only of minke whales, but all inhabitants they share their marine environment with.

Since the early Nineties, their dedicated long-term studies in the St. Lawrence Estuary, Eastern Canada, have opened an unexpected and unique view into the fascinating lives of the poorly known minke whales.
