WDC completes survey on remote island to protect whales and dolphins

WDC has now completed a second set of intensive surveys near the very remote M’buke Island, Papua New Guinea.  Working with Papua New Guinea Department of Environment and Conservation (PNG DEC), M’buke Island Peoples Association (MIPA), South Pacific Projects, and University of Papua New Guinea, the survey team came across 18 different groups of whales and dolphins. Most commonly seen were spinner dolphinsOur surveys will be instrumental in assessing and addressing threats of climate change, mining activity, and entanglement in fishing nets, as well as helping to introduce a plan to manage whales and dolphins in Papua New Guinea.

WDC is grateful for the support given by the Keidanren Nature Conservation Fund, SeaLife London Aquarium, and Aqualung.
