Oceanomare-Delphis Onlus (ODO) is a non-profit organization established to study and preserve cetaceans, and the ecosystems they inhabit, through knowledge, conservation and awareness actions.
ODO is the outcome of the fusion of two different Italian associations – Oceanomare and Delphis MDC – that had both successfully led research projects and conservation activities on cetaceans in the Mediterranean Sea.
Sharing common views, actions and people, in 2010 Oceanomare and Delphis MDC decided to blend their effort, establishing a new, larger organization.
“We believe that a fusion of expertise and ideas towards a common goal is needed to meet challenges facing cetacean knowledge/conservation and beyond”
(Daniela Silvia Pace, Oceanomare President - Katia Massaro, Delphis MDC President)
