Everybody knows that Namibia is a land of contrasts and that Namibia has the second biggest canyon (Fish River Canyon) and the oldest desert (Namib Desert) in the world… but very few people know anything about our marine life.
The Namibian Dolphin Project is out to change that through education, research and involving the public. According to Namibian Dolphin Project’s Website they “started in 2008 and has grown from strength to strength since then. Our core focus is research on coastal dolphins and whales in Namibian waters with the ultimate aim of generating high quality data that is useful to both science and management. We work closely with local NGO’s, the marine tourism industry and the Namibian government to ensure that our results get to the right people. More recently, the NDP has been engaging more directly with the local community, especially school children, through our Community Outreach Programme.”
