There are some whales and dolphins that are endangered, including the Ganges River dolphin
and blue whale. Whales and dolphins have many challenges that they face on a daily basis:

  • Trash ingestion
  • Entanglement in fishing nets and lines and other litter
  • Pollution, including oil spills and agricultural and mining runoff
  • Collisions with boats
  • Bycatch as part of fishing operations
  • Climate change

If you observe an ill or injured whale or dolphin in The Bahamas, please call the Bahamas Marine Mammal Stranding Network at 242.544.5409.
