Panacetacea was founded in 2009 as 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by an international group of marine biologists that shared a common mission; to produce high quality scientific studies on the biology of marine mammals of Panama and develop capacity building, educational, and outreach activities that ensure the optimal management and conservation of these animals and their habitat. Our organization's vision is a future where scientists and the public work together to protect marine ecosystems and increase awareness about ecosystem health and services.
To produce high quality scientific studies on the biology of marine mammals of Panama and develop capacity building, educational and outreach activities that ensure the optimal management and conservation of these animals.
We conduct cetacean monitoring studies in both the Caribbean and Pacific waters of Panama, with the purpose of collecting scientific data that can be use to establish conservation strategies to protect marine mammal habitats and their populations.
To make our data available to the public through peer reviewed journals, government reports, media, meetings and symposium to ensure the public and the scientific community gets access to our results.
