UAE Dolphin Project Presentation and Q&A

Whales and dolphins conservation in the UAE – a decade of efforts from public sightings, to the OceanX Expedition

You are invited to register to our member’s May presentation social event at Deep Dive Dubai by Dr Ada Natoli, Zayed University.

Dr Ada Natoli from Zayed University and founder of the UAE Dolphin Project Initiative will share some fascinating information on these species and the results of over a decade of citizen science data, dedicated coastal surveys, and the recent offshore survey conducted on board of OceanXplorer.

Join us in a “deep dive” into the world of the little-known whales, dolphins and porpoises of the UAE and find out how you can also contribute to the conservation efforts towards the protection of these charismatic species so crucial to the marine ecosystem.

The UAE Dolphin Project is an initiative that runs under Zayed University aiming to gather scientific information to support the conservation of cetaceans. OceanX is a non-profit initiative dedicated to marine conservation that utilises cutting edge technology on board the OceanXplorer, the most advanced marine research vessel.
