Manx Whale and Dolphin Watch is a charity based on the Isle of Man dedicated to the ongoing conservation of our local whale, dolphin and porpoise species, collectively known as cetaceans. We work year round conducting non-invasive research to monitor the health of the cetacean population and their habitat. We also work hard to raise public awareness of these animals which is a vital part to their ongoing conservation.
