10-03-2017 IFAW and SOS Dolfijn announce partnership

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and SOS Dolfijn foundation intent to start a collaboration for the protection of cetaceans in the Netherlands. The organizations announced today, the 10th of March 2017, they anticipate a long-lasting partnership. The expertise of IFAW and SOS Dolfijn combined will increase quality and possibilities to offer help to cetaceans in need. 

IFAW is an international animal welfare organization and their work includes an extensive whale protection program. The Marine Mammal Rescue & Research team of IFAW is a leading organization in the United States that has been responsible for the successful rescue of a large number of stranded dolphins and whales. Including mass strandings.

The SOS Dolfijn foundation is known for the rescue and rehabilitation of stranded small cetaceans along the Dutch coast and also in countries like France, Belgium and Germany. SOS Dolfijn is specialised in the rehabilitation of Harbour porpoises. Over the past decade, more than 40 Harbour porpoises were successfully brought back to sea after rehabilitation. With these success rates, SOS Dolfijn has a leading position and is the most successful rehabilitation centre for cetaceans worldwide. Find out more about SOS Dolfijn here.

After leaving the Dolfinarium in Harderwijk last year, SOS Dolfijn is content to have found a strong partner in IFAW. Both organizations share objectives and a passion for helping animals in need. By sharing their experiences and knowhow, an important step forward can be made in optimizing activities focusing on whale rescue and conservation. IFAW and SOS Dolfijn are convinced that by joining forces more can be achieved. Not only in rescue work, but also in scientific research and educational projects.

IFAW and SOS Dolfijn at present are working on a lasting and strong partnership. The SOS Dolfijn foundation received financial support from IFAW, making it possible for the SOS Dolfijn rescue team to continue giving help to stranded whales. Over the past weeks, several Harbour porpoises were found stranded along the North sea coast. Some were found alive and in need of medical help. One of the main and immediate goals for IFAW and SOS Dolfijn, is to create new facilities where live stranded dolphins and porpoises can get the medical care that is necessary for recovery. SOS Dolfijn is the only organization in the Netherlands with a permit and the experience in rehabilitation of stranded small cetaceans.

For this joined project, IFAW and SOS Dolfijn are looking for supporters. Any individual or company caring about whales and the environment can support the work and projects. For creating new facilities for rescue and rehabilitation, the organisations are welcoming new sponsors. If you are interested, please fill in the form below to get in contact.
