area year-round and about 130 individuals have been photo-identified over the
past 10 years. Research activities focus on dolphin distribution, abundance,
behaviour, social structure, habitat use, feeding habits, fishery interactions
and tourism impact, and aim to provide the scientific baseline for effective
conservation of dolphins and their habitat. This research has been the basis for
the implementation of Natura 2000 for bottlenose dolphins in <st1:country-region w:st="on" class="" style=""><st1:place w:st="on" class="" style="">Slovenia</st1:place></st1:country-region>. Apart
