Description

The Swiss Cetacean Society-SCS is a non-profit organisation devoted to the preservation of marine mammals in their natural habitat. Based on the conviction that better scientific knowledge of the animals and their environment is essential to ensure efficient protection measures, SCS organises worldwide campaigns at sea for data collection on cetacean populations. This data is ultimately used in research. At the same time, SCS distributes general information about marine mammals to the Swiss public, encourages access to specialised training and organizes the logistics at sea of scientific and environmental programmes abroad.
