Tenerife Whale and Dolphin Research

Eco-Adventure tours that support cetacean research

Pilot whale research project Tenerife

A Co-operative Research Effort

Photo Identification Project

During the whale and dolphin watching tours our staff take photos of the whales and dolphins for two reasons. The first goal of photographing the cetaceans is research and conservation. The second reason is to share with our guests so they can relax on the tour immerse themselves in the experience.

Pilot whales all have unique dorsal fins. So a good photo of the Pilot whale dorsal fin can help identify individuals in the Tenerife Pilot whale population. A great project we are collaborating on is the Calderones de Canarias Pilot whale catalog. Our staff are adding valuable information to the existing catalog of over 400 Pilot whales already identified.

We also donate photos and recordings to other cetacean research organisations like; Association Tonina, HappyWhale, MONICET and the World Cetacean Alliance.
