People and Organizations

The following people and organizations have been working in different aspects related to  river dolphins and/or in different areas of the Amazon and Orinoco river basins. Their work is vital for understanding the main biological aspects of river dolphin species, the dynamics of their habitats and the social, cultural and economic aspects of the local communities that live and depend on these watersheds. As a regional network we want more organizations and people to join us.
