MARINE CONSERVATION AND BIOACOUSTICS ASSOCIATION
It is a non-profit association founded in 2020 with the aim of conserving the dolphins and whales of the Algarve, as well as the oceans, through a number of axes of action.

Community building promotes specific and continuous actions throughout the year linked to the ocean’s sustainability aiming to connect the local community.
