About

Description

Pelagos Sanctuary is a cross-border brand dedicated to the conservation of marine mammals and their habitats. Founded in 1999, it is the result of an agreement signed by France, Italy, and the Principality of Monaco. The primary goal of Pelagos Sanctuary is to ensure the favorable conservation status of marine mammals by protecting them from the direct and indirect negative impacts of human activities, such as pollution, noise, accidental capture, and more.


The sanctuary is home to eight species of whales and dolphins, including the striped dolphin, bottlenose dolphin, and sperm whale. It also occasionally welcomes the monk seal. However, the Pelagos Sanctuary faces increasing pressure from various human activities, resulting in serious threats to marine mammal populations.


These threats include ship strikes, bycatch, underwater noise disturbance, pollution, and stranding. The brand encourages everyone to get involved in protecting marine mammals and their habitat. Citizens can become Pelagos Ambassadors and promote awareness about the conservation of Mediterranean marine mammals.


Municipalities can sign the Pelagos partnership Charter and play a crucial role in safeguarding the coast of the sanctuary. By collaborating and forming partnerships, Pelagos Sanctuary aims to achieve large-scale conservation goals and reduce threats to marine mammals.
