The data collected by the Scottish Marine Animal Stranding Scheme is available to collaborators from all over the world, and our archive contains a unique collection of samples and information from over two decades of continuous research.

The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG) is dedicated to the conservation and better understanding of cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises) in Irish waters. The group was founded in 1990 to establish an Irish stranding and sighting scheme and to campaign for the declaration of Irish territorial waters as a whale and dolphin sanctuary. Just six months later, in June 1991, the Irish Government declared all Irish waters to be a whale and dolphin sanctuary... the first of its kind in Europe.
Below is the database we have collected with the help of so many stakeholders in the National Marine Mammal Stranding Network. Since the Whale Stranding Indonesia initiative is largely voluntary, there will be a time lag between one stranding event and the uploading of said data into this website. For a more immediate update of stranding events, please visit our Facebook page.
