Founded in 1995, Pro Delphinus is a not-for-profit Peruvian organization based in Lima.
Pro Delphinus is committed to the conservation of threatened and endangered marine fauna. Together with organizations such as the Peruvian Center for Cetacean Research (CEPEC), we have participated actively in a campaign to legally ban the take and consumption of dolphins in Peru.
Currently, Pro Delphinus conducts projects on research and conservation of threatened and endangered marine species, such as sea turtles, marine otters, cetaceans, seabirds and sharks. These species are either permanent residents to Peruvian waters or temporary visitors as they continue along their migration routes.
Studies of the interactions between these species and Peruvian fisheries and the ways to prevent them, form a major component of Pro Delphinus’ current research.
