Description

CCS's mission is to improve cetacean conservation within the Wider Caribbean Region and beyond. Created by two marine biologists from Guadeloupe and Martinique islands in 2020, and based in Martinique, the group aims to work at the Caribbean scale, to improve cetaceans conservation through international cooperation, via networking and practical research. Their initial "Ti Whale An Nou" project 'aims at determining population estimates, distributions, movement patterns, social structure and vocal clans of the Sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus) in the Lesser Antilles. This project also allow to improve knowledge on the diversity, distribution and relative densities of the other cetacean species in the region.'
