Support our snubfin dolphin
HELP ONE OF our rarest marine mammals – the protected Australian snubfin dolphin. It’s thought there could be fewer than 10,000 adults of this highly sociable marine creature left, mostly in small populations along Australia’s northern coastline. To ensure the future of this unique species, which was only identified in 2005, we need to understand more about its natural history and protect its habitat from increasing human impact.
Your donation will provide much-needed funds for two crucial research and conservation projects: a study by Southern Cross University’s Capricorn Cetaceans Project and the campaign by the Mackay Conservation Group to save snubfin and seagrass habitat along the central Great Barrier Reef.
