Intensive course of cetology
and marine ecology
Intensive weekend-long course to acquire knowledge on biology, ecology and animal behavior of the Pelagos Marine Mammals Sanctuary
Have you ever had a close encounter with dolphins, whales, sperm whales, and turtles? Have you recognized the species or stopped at the generic "it's a whale, it's a dolphin"? How many questions did you ask yourself? Why do dolphins jump? How do they sleep? Why can a sperm whale make a 45-minute apnea and go over 1000 meters deep? Why is a whale at least twice the length of your boat?
Sign up for our course and choose the weekend that suits you.
Open to everyone.
