Species Fact Sheets

The Society’s Education Committee updates and monitors the Wikipedia articles for each marine mammal species, which are displayed within these pages. However, as Wikipedia’s content creation is open to the public, errors in the Wikipedia articles can and will arise from time to time.

Our experts continue to add new species and update existing ones as new information becomes available. If you would like to participate in this effort, please contact Education Committee Wikipedia curator at wikipedia@marinemammalscience.org!

We would like to thank experts in the field who have helped develop these species fact sheets and give a special thank you to Uko Gorter for providing illustrations for each species.
