The Blue World Institute undertakes research activities into several large marine vertebrates. Our main research is on the coastal communities of bottlenose dolphins in the region. Other project activities also focus on other cetacean species including the fin whale, Cuvier’s beaked whale, Risso’s dolphin, striped dolphin and common dolphin as well as the Mediterranean monk seal. In cooperation with the Croatian Natural History Museum, we conduct research into sharks, giant devil rays, and sea turtles.
