The core goals of the Ocean Azores project is to:

Whale Heritage Sites (WHS) recognise outstanding destinations for responsible and sustainable whale and dolphin watching. They provide the travel industry with a clear marker to identify and support sustainable practice, and create a platform for communities to engage with marine culture, heritage and biodiversity.

Goals include:

– Reinforce the Azores through the WHS as a sustainable marine tourism destination
– Increased awareness of cetaceans and their role in the environment to both locals and visitors
– Raise funds for research on cetaceans and the impact of marine tourism
– Build upon existing education initiatives and events and help to provide a promotional platform
– Encourage member companies to increase pick up and collection of sea debris
