Blue World Institute of Marine Research and Conservation
The Blue World Institute of Marine Research and Conservation carries out its activities through three programmes – scientific, education and conservation. Research focuses on large marine vertebrates (mostly Cetaceans, sea turtles and cartilaginous fish) with an aim to contribute to their and marine environment protection and conservation.
Results of research are translated to activities aimed at rasing of public awareness and education. Our offices and field activities are based on Adriatic islands, showing our support to sustainable development of local, insular communities through cooperation and an interdisciplinary approach to conservation.

The Lošinj Marine Education Centre, Veli Lošinj
