Our achievements: 

 

2013 We were able to expose the illegal killing of thousands of dolphins as shark bait in Peru.

2010 – By uniting local stakeholders we could stop an entire industrial port project which would have destroyed the bay of Ancón. The bay is now a protected area.

2010 – After ten years of lobbying in cooperation with other NGOs 28 islands were declared a national reserve protecting 90% of sea lion colonies and 70% of penguin colonies in Peru.

2009 – We helped Peruvian fishermen to stop seismic testing for oil reserves in the Tumbes area and forced the company to rewrite and improve their Environmental Impact Assessment

2006 – 2012 We conducted the first ever long-term photo-identification population study on bottlenose dolphins  from Lima to Paracas in Peru

2002 – 2005 We exposed the illegal killing of dolphins for human consumption in Peru. Thanks to our information more than a dozen illegal dealer were captured by the Peruvian police

1999 – 2004 We conducted pioneering underwater research in the Peruvian sea, in the cloud forest, in the rainforest and in Lake Titicaca, diving for the first time ever in many locations.

1999 – 2004 We worked in environmental education and cleaned up beaches

.

What we are doing now:
