The Delfini del Ponente APS is a young association of scientists and professionals with a focus on protection of the sea and its creatures, all with an interest in conserving the biodiversity of Western Liguria in Italy. Monitoring cetaceans and other marine wildlife including seabirds in the Western Ligurian Sea is their main activity, largely focused on the bottlenose dolphin, a species that lives in coastal shallow waters. In addition, they present educational activities to cultivate an environmental culture, including internships. They are based in the city of Imperia, positioned in a central area of the “Pelagos Sanctuary”.
