A new study published in the journal Marine Biology investigated the social network of dolphins in the northern Adriatic Sea. It showed that dolphins living in the Gulf of Trieste form distinct social groups and some of these groups don’t seem to like to talk to each other.
It is widely known that dolphins usually occur in groups. In the case of common bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), group composition often changes, with animals joining or leaving the groups. But these groups are not random. Individual dolphins prefer to spend time with particular other ...
New research shows that dolphins in the northern Adriatic contain high levels of PCBs, highly toxic chemicals banned in the 1970s-1980s, and that females pass on their pollutant burden to their young. A new study led by Morigenos was published yesterday in the journal Science of the Total Environment.
PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) are a group of man-made chemicals previously used in the manufacture of products including electrical equipment, flame retardants and paints. High exposure to PCBs is known to weaken animal immune systems and markedly reduce breeding ...
Give your loved ones interesting and useful gift for upcoming holidays: adopt a dolphin from Slovenia and support conservation of dolphins and their environment in the northern Adriatic.

With the donation for the one-year dolphin adoption, you will financially support our work and thus contribute to the conservation of the northern Adriatic and its biodiversity.
Every adopter receives an adoption certificate which includes: the adopter’s name, the ...

Last week marked the end of the biennial 67th meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in Florianopolis, Brazil, where Slovenian took over the 2-year presidency of the Commission from Japan. The International Whaling Commission was set up based on the Convention for the Regulation of Whaling, signed in Washington on 2 December 1946. Slovenia became a member of the IWC in 2006. IWC member states are divided to those that oppose different types of whaling (“like-minded or anti-whaling countries”, which includes Slovenia) and those that support whaling ...

On Saturday, 18th August 2018, 12th Dolphin Day will take place in Piran. We kindly invite you to spend your afternoon in our company. A more detailed programme will be announced soon.
In 2017, Morigenos started testing the utility of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs, also known as drones) for studies of behaviour, group dynamics, body condition, morphometrics and other aspects of dolphin biology. Here we share some of the first aerial shots of our dolphins. We hope you enjoy them.
We are proud to announce that you can read about Morigenos and dolphins along the Slovenian coast in the June issue of National Geographic Slovenija (in Slovenian).
