On Tuesday April 27th, 2021, a young individual of Grey whale (Eschrichtius robustus) has been observed off the ligurian coast.

This is an extraordinary event because the Grey whale is not one of the regularly observed species in the Pelagos Sanctuary.

In order not to generate disturbances, it is of major importance to respect the ACCOBAMS/Pelagos Code of good conduct: https://www.sanctuaire-pelagos.org/en/raising-awareness/code-of-good-conduct

It is recalled that it is possible to convey the values promoted by the Agreement for the protection of cetaceans in the Sanctuary. To become a Pelagos Ambassador, click here
