The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group are dedicated to the conservation and better understanding of cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoise) in Irish waters.
They work in co-operation with industry, fishermen and other groups whose interests may sometimes conflict with those of cetacean conservation. They also work to raise public awareness about cetaceans and how to whale-watch responsibly.
To keep up to date with the latest whale and dolphin sightings around the country, they have a sighting scheme which includes all validated sighting reports from around the Irish coast in the past 20 years.
