The Oceania Project - Caring for Whales, Dolphins and the Oceans

Animal Conservation Care, Protection and Information

The focus of The Oceania Project is Cetacea (Whales & Dolphins) but we realise that all species of life on this Planet participate in the intricate web of living systems equally with Humans. Thus all animals are precious and deserve care and protection. We therefore felt it important to include a selection of links to sites serving other creatures.
