Albania Dolphin Research

Beginning to understand the unknown

All cetaceans that inhabit the Adriatic Sea are classified as either data deficient or at risk. In addition to this, many of the anthropogenic threats that endanger their very survival are caused by marine traffic and yet the coasts ofAlbania have seen hardly any cetacean surveys.
Albanian Dolphin Research is DMAD’s newest project in the Adriatic and is a collaboration between DMAD and the Agricultural University of Tirana. The research project is the first survey effort of its kind in Albania, combining dedicated survey efforts with the citizen science and capacity building activities.
