GRIMMA implements projects to keep a watch on marine mammal’s population, mostly are sea based surveys, in which we obtain important data like species identification, size and type of the group witnessed, GPS position, acoustic recordings, photo-id of dorsal and caudal fins, etc. Later that data is analyzed to generate knowledge that aids in the conservation of the species and their ecosystems.
In some occasions marine mammals strand on the beach or near shore, and are unable to fend for itself, the reasons may vary depending on the actual case, but may include: disease, injury, disorientation or decease GRIMMA maintains an active all year round attention program for these events in coordination with government institutions, independent experts and other organizations, also during these events we can obtain a great and important collection of data or samples that are important for analyses.

All of the previous are done with interesting and fun activities for all ages, with the objective of increasing the interest of the public in the care of marine mammals and the ecosystems.
