Whales and dolphins sustain a depth of fascination that is almost without parallel in nature, in part due to the intrigue of the natural environment they inhabit. As most of the marine world cannot be seen below the waters, it is the cetaceans, whilst spending their time on the surface, that inadvertently forge links between people and the seas.
Whales and dolphins bring marine conservation into people's homes.
They help spearhead successful public marine education particularly in local communities. Spotting whales and dolphins mobilise individuals to take simple actions to protect the wider marine environment.
