Morigenos – Slovenian Marine Mammal Society is an independent, non-profit and non-governmental organisation that works towards marine conservation through scientific research and education.


We have been studying dolphins in the Gulf of Trieste and neighbouring waters since 2002. Scientific research allows us to better understand and protect the dolphin population living here. We know more than 200 individual dolphins from this area, 150 of which are encountered regularly. Today, these dolphins are among the best studied in the entire Mediterranean Sea.

In addition to research work, Morigenos gives great emphasis on educating and raising awareness about dolphins in the north Adriatic Sea and on the importance of preserving the marine environment and its biodiversity.
