Whale and Dolphin Tourism 

There is growing concern about the effect of tourism on whale and dolphin ecology; research in Western Australia and New Zealand has indicated that exposure to human activity can have a negative impact.

Next April, some of the world's leading scientists meet in Bunbury, Australia, for a convention on whales and dolphins, where it is hoped to launch an international research project into the impacts of human activities on dolphin ecology throughout the world and thereby develop sustainable dolphin and whale tourism. More.

The Dolphin Discovery Centre at Bunbury, is a non-profit organisation committed to dolphin research, education, conservation and also tourism. Located about 180 km south of Perth in Western Australia, the centre enables people to interact with dolphins, which can often be seen in the shallow waters in front of the Centre.
