Launch of world’s most comprehensive guide to whales and dolphins highlights the many mysteries that still remain

The most comprehensive on-line guide to whales and dolphins is launched this week following over a year’s painstaking work by researchers at the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS), which ironically, along with a number of fascinating facts, has revealed exactly how little we humans still know about these magnificent creatures.

The guide, which is of particular use to students, researchers, the tourist trade, and journalists comes in three languages, and provides interesting and easy to use insights into the creature’s habitats, behaviour, and where to find them. It also features 80 maps, over 400 images, a threat index (which highlights the level of danger facing each species). To have a look for yourself, go to http://www2.wdcs.org/species/index.php
