Science Purpose Cetacian Conservation in Nicaragua
The Cetacean conservation project of Nicaragua aims to combine the fundamental values of science, education, and conservation to safeguard the endangered cetacean species in the country.
Did we lose you?
First- you might be asking what a cetacean is? We can help with that. A cetacean is a group of aquatic mammals that includes whales, dolphins, and porpoises.
Now we have your interest.
Joëlle de Weerdt is heading the project. It is a unique endeavor that combines science, education, and conservation. The first of its kind here in Nicaragua, this project is based in San Juan del Sur. It is here in our town that Joëlle and her team are counting, identifying, and documenting the local cetacean population
Interested in contributing? You can do this by donating of course. But also arranging a beach cleanup makes an impact. You can even join the team as a marine biologist for a day!
By lending your support to this important cause, you’ll be doing your part to ensure that these amazing creatures continue to thrive in our oceans. Joëlle’s project is not just about saving whales and dolphins—it’s about protecting our oceans for future generations.
