Their local and European projects are based, overall, in the protection and conservation of the environment and biodiversity and in the topic of sustainable development – to give values to their territories, doing the first step to create a better future and a better world for us and for our society.

ABOUT JONIAN DOLPHIN CONSERVATION
The Jonian Dolphin Conservation is a scientific research association aimed at the study of cetaceans of the Gulf of Taranto in the Northern Ionian Sea. Profound connoisseurs of the marine environment in its most disparate aspects, the members of our working group put their experiences and attitudes at the disposal of research in the deepest sense of the term. The objective of protecting cetaceans of the Gulf of Taranto can only be achieved by creating awareness in the population that cetaceans still exist in our sea. This awareness can only be achieved by creating knowledge.
