The North Atlantic Society believes that the solution to the threats facing whales, dolphins, porpoises, and their habitats begins with educating people about these magnificent ambassadors of the oceans.

We've also addedfact sheetsof the most common species of whales, dolphins and porpoises in the Norwegian Sea, which will help you to identify the sighted animal.
