Members / Whale Conservation Institute Argentina (WCI) -Instituto de Conservación de Ballenas (ICB)

It is an Argentine non-profit organization whose mission is conserving whales and their environment through research and education. It was founded in Buenos Aires in 1996 when it established an affiliation with the Whale Conservation Institute (WCI) from Massachussetts to conduct the Right Whale Program in Argentina. Established in 1970, the Program has become the longest continuous study of a large whale based on tracking the life-history of known individuals. Its main objective is monitoring the status of the right whale population at Península Valdés. It has provided science-based data to government authorities that allowed them to make sound conservation decisions. ICB works with a network of more than 50 NGOs in regional-scale whale conservation strategies in Latin America.
