About

The Dominica Sperm Whale Project seeks to learn more about these mysterious ocean giants in order to protect and conserve populations of whales worldwide. The whale families in the Caribbean have given us the opportunity to come to know them not just as animals, but as individuals within families; as brother and sisters, as mother and babysitters, and as a community of neighbours living together in the Caribbean Sea. Now ten years in, we have followed calves from birth and know that families have lived in the region since 1984, but likely for generations. Please help us ensure they have a healthy ocean in which to raise their next generation.
