Centre for Dolphin Studies
The Centre for Dolphin Studies (CDS) is an internationally recognised, non-profit research institute. CDS is evolving from a need to expand knowledge of Western Indian Ocean and in particular, Southern African, coastal and pelagic marine mammals, in light of the continued and increasing degradation of the environment. Although research is concentrated in the coastal zone and broadly encompasses the coastal ecosystem, the primary objective is the development of an internationally recognised research programme for the long-term study of the marine mammals of the Western Indian Ocean.
Research of coastal zone and coastal ecosystem
The CDS forms partnerships with Governments and NGOs throughout the Western Indian Ocean, to further coastal conservation.
