The Namibian Dolphin Project | Our Mission

Our Mission

The Namibian Dolphin Project is a non-profit, research and conservation organization run by several independent scientists and educators. Our mission is primarily to research Namibia’s cetaceans to generate data on these populations that can be used for their conservation through management. Additionally we are increasingly working with the community through our outreach programme to increase awareness of the Namibia’s marine life. As lovers of nature, we are concerned with the increasing number of human impacts that are threatening the Namibian environment, as scientists, we hope we can do something about it.
