Dolphin and Whale Species Identification Factsheets

IWC, CMS (2021) Dolphin and Whale Species Identification Factsheets. In: Whale Watching Handbook. Accessed 3 Mar 2021

While aimed at whale whatching, this webpage provides cetacean species descriptions that are of interest to a broad audience. The page links to detailed species descriptions that include information about distribution, ecology, and conservation status.

A useful feature is the downloadable, printable A4 format Factsheets for the featured species. These are designed to provide a quick overview of essential identifying features, distribution and important facts, and can be viewed on screen, or printed (and laminated) for use on vessels.
