Biodiversity, abundance, distribution, habitat use, risk factors or local threatens are those data that AMBAR collects and analyzes in order to increase the knowledge of these species.


Scientific volunteering that takes place in the coastal waters of the Basque Country, with the main aim of collecting information of local species in their habitat. This data is gathered and stored in the Basque Government Nature Information System.


Scientific volunteering that gives aid to stranded cetaceans, pinnipeds, sharks and sea turtles.


Stranded animals are an important source of biological information. AMBAR is legally allowed to collect and deal with these material, by taking samples and doing necropsies, when possible. At the moment, we are building up a marine mammal bone catalogue/inventory for the Basque Country region.
