With a sponsorship, you can engage directly in the protection of endangered marine mammals or surprise with a truly extraordinary gift. They are called “Bodo”, “Donna”, or “Mysterio” and live far away from each other in the waters from Peru, Croatia and from the Caribbean island Dominica. The bottlenose dolphins “Bodo” and “Donna” or the giant sperm whale females “Mysterio” will never meet each other and share a fate but: without the help of compassionate people you and your kind will not survive. For the endangered animals, the dolphins e.V. (GRD) offered the society to save dolphin and whale sponsorships. With a sponsorship, you can engage directly in the protection of the marine mammals or surprise with a truly extraordinary gift. All sponsors will receive a certificate, a photo of “their” dolphin or sperm whale, information to the respective protection project, as well as quarterly GRD magazine “Dolphin post”.
A sponsorship costs 50 euros a year, it is tax deductible as a donation and can be terminated at any time without giving reasons. The GRD protection projects in Croatia, Peru and Dominica funded with revenue. While the life of “Bodo” and his family in Peru by illegal hunting, dynamite fishing and marine pollution is at risk, “Donna”, and their only about 220 conspecifics in the Croatian Adriatic struggle for survival. The small, consisting of seven female and two juveniles sperm whale family of “Mysterio” – the so-called “group of seven” could be in the sight of the Japanese whaling fleet and destroyed by this. The GRD is looking for sponsors for 28 individually known bottlenose dolphin from Peru and Croatia as well as for 6 sperm whales, which live off Dominica. The “Adriatic Dolphin” are regularly observed since 2001 in the Northern Dalmatian coastal waters, while spread the “Peru dolphins” to two groups at the Paracas peninsula, located in the South of the country. Their names were the bottlenose mostly due to special features, occasionally due to special Behaviors. So, “Vitali” from Peru must master his life without tail fluke, his friend who jumping massive “Vitali-PAL” is almost constantly at his side and help him hunt for fish. “Donna” (Flash) from Croatia is a male that was given its name due to a thick slash on the Finn.
