The Cetacean strandings project

Every year, between 350 and 800 whales, dolphins and porpoises wash up on British shores. Most are dead, but some are still alive. The Natural History Museum in London is responsible for monitoring these strandings. Since the Cetacean strandings project started in 1913, more than 25,000 animals have been recorded.

The Museum's strandings project is part of the UK Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme (CSIP). The data the scientists compile is used by other researchers, government agencies, conservationists and animal welfare groups. The information they provide is vital to increasing our understanding of whales, dolphins and porpoises, and conserving them in the future.

The Cetacean strandings project is one of the longest-running scientific investigations of its kind. It has generated a wealth of crucial information about these captivating marine mammals.
