The Dolphins

The resident community of bottelnose dolphins living in the Sado estuary and surrounding maritime zones is the greatest expression and also the living proof of the extraordinary natural heritage that caracterizes this perfect match between river and sea. The fact that it is the only community residing in an estuary in Portugal makes it particularly interesting, in such a way that, by studying the behavior and habits of these dolphins, we are closer to understand the dynamics of the complex ecosystem at the mouth of the Sado river.

In close cooperation with the ICNF, our team takes an active role in the study, monitoring and protection of these unique dolphins in Portugal as well as their habitat, investing in a pedagogical approach in which the client is challenged to know their particularities, threats and habits, while a behavioral interpretation is made on each observation.
