TWO BAYS TRACKER

 

Being a Two Bays Tracker is an easy way to report sightings of dolphins and large whales and contribute to creating positive impacts for cetaceans during this time of rapid environmental change.

The Two Bays Tracker program is the only long-term, independent and secure portal where citizen scientists can be confident that their data is used to provide up-to-date and publicly available understandings about cetaceans, aiding wildlife managers in making informed decisions.

Reports of large whales are entered into the respected Two Bays Whale Project database, and our researchers validate every report to ensure the integrity of every sighting. All data held within the Two Bays Whale Project database are publicly available in the form of annual reports and data analysis, which are publicly available on our website.
