is a Greek non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to
researching and defending the rich biodiversity of the Greek seas and
islands, as well as of the NE Mediterranean region overall. This region of
rare biodiversity is in desperate need of protection as is being increasing
threatened by harmful anthropogenic activities!

The Eastern Aegean region is home many rare and endangered species,
including some of the *most important remaining populations* in the
Mediterranean of several marine mammals.Research surveys can focus on:
- Dolphin populations, including: D. delphis (common dolphin), T. truncatus
(bottlenose dolphin), S.coeruleoalba (striped dolphin) and G. griseus
(Risso’s dolphin);
- Whale populations, including: P. macrocephalus (sperm whale), Ziphius
cavirostris (Cuvier’s beaked whale) and occasional visitors B. physalus
(fin whale);
- The Mediterranean monk seal (M. monachus), an important and critically
endangered marine mammal specie found in the region.

*Aims*
• Efficient conservation of the marine mammal populations from
anthropogenic threats
• Monitoring of habitat use, abundance and distribution
• Study of population structure and dynamics
• Study of behavioural ecology & communication
• Study of factors of impact (with a focus on interactions with fisheries).

• Collecting environmental and anthropogenic data
• Gathering acoustic data
• Data entry and analysis
• Raising awareness
• Utilizing ArcGIS to map populations
• Questionaire-based surveys
• First aid of stranded animals (e.g., cetaceans, seals and sea turtles)
