Cetaceans: Species at risk
All species of cetaceans are included in protection lists such as the Habitat Directive, Bonn Convention, Bern Convention and Barcelona Convention. In spite of that, these species continue to be endangered, and they require action to be taken in order to protect them.
Oceana considers that the declaration of marine protected areas as set forth in the Habitat Directive can be a very useful tool to protect these species, but in addition, the limitation of the use of sonar or eliminating destructive fishing gear.
