Cetaceans

Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises



Cetaceans are whales, dolphins and porpoises. The word cetacean is derived from the greek word "ketos" meaning sea monster. Whales and especially dolphins are well known for their intelligence and for their often complex social behaviors. We care about cetaceans' habitat, and that's why we work around the globe to protect our oceans. Learn more about our ocean work.
