Protecting whales and dolphins since 1967
American Cetacean Society (ACS) is the oldest whale conservation group in the world.  Founded in 1967, it is a non-profit, volunteer membership organization with regional U.S. chapters and members in 22 countries.

ACS is dedicated to the protection of whales, dolphins, porpoises, and their habitats through education and outreach, conservation advocacy, and facilitating research. We believe the best way to protect cetaceans is by educating the public about these remarkable animals and the problems they face in their increasingly threatened habitats.
