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 along the Slovenian coast since 2002. Our research also takes places in the neighbouring Croatian and Italian waters. Scientific research allows us to better understand and protect the dolphin population living here. We know more than 150 individual dolphins from this area, 70 of which are encountered regularly. Today, the “Slovenian” dolphins are among the best studied in the entire Adriatic Sea.

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