        Why donate?

        Whales and dolphins are increasingly endangered, exposed to threats ranging from entanglement in fishing gear, collision with large boats, habitat degradation, lack of food caused by overfishing, to pollution and underwater noise. Cetaceans, especially those living in the Mediterranean, are indeed poorly known and even less protected.

        The safeguard of marine mammals and their environment is Tethys' mission, achieved through the provision of sound scientific knowledge.

        The Institute is the first Italian non-profit of its kind; we have been engaged in research and public awareness for over 30 years. Help the conservation of whales, dolphins and seals with a donation. Even a small amount will make a difference!
