YoD Priority Projects -an Introduction
In this section of the YoD website, we want to introduce you to a selection of dolphin conservation projects. These projects were chosen by an expert panel and are of special value to the species and habitats they deal with.
The projects were chosen from a large selection by the Cetacean Liaison Group (CLG), an international panel of dolphin and whale conservation experts active in all parts of the world. The CLG chose them based on of their potential to strongly impact cetacean conservation in their respective focus areas. YoD Partner WDCS (Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society) will play an active part in the implementation of the projects.
If you find one of the projects especially appealing, you can donate to make it happen. We (will) provide the necessary information along with a project description.
We will support these projects through fundraising, channeling of donations and awareness raising. For this purpose, we have chosen one project each from
1. The ASCOBANS agreement area (ASCOBANS is the Agreement on the Conservation of Cetaceans in the Baltic and North Seas)
2. The ACCOBAMS agreement area (ACCOBAMS is the Agreement on the Conservation of Cetaceans in the Black and Mediterranean Seas)
3. The South Pacific Islands region
4. The South Asian region
5. The West African coastal region
A detailed outline and explanation of the projects' goals and structure can be found in this section of the website.
