Two Bays Whales Project

Two Bays 100 Whales Appeal

Your help is needed to protect whales in OUR back yard. 

It is critical that we do more to protect whales visiting our coast. The Two Bays Whale Project has made an important start, but we must do more.......

Knowing the identity and movements of individual whales is central to managing the risks they face from the extremes of population growth, industry and climate change.

The milestone of '100 whales' for the Victorian Humpback Whales Catalogue is a concrete way to achieve this. It builds on our recent identification of the 50th individual whale.  

It may take a decade of sustained effort but we are committed to providing the evidence needed to support whale conservation in southern Australia.

Please join us to help build Two Bays Citizen Science Project into a powerful scientific and community voice for whales in our waters. 

Your  donation towards the '100 WHALES' appeal will make you a champion for the whales off our coast.

The Two Bays Whale Project is a Citizen Science initiative led by the Dolphin Research Institute in partnership with Wildlife Coast Cruises. The project is designed to accurately record sightings of large cetacean species within Port Phillip, Western Port and adjacent waters (Barwon Heads to Inverloch). 

The key species for this citizen science project are humpback and southern right whales but can also include other species such as killer, minke and blue whales (also occasionally seen locally).
