Adopt a Burrunan dolphin!

Buddy up with a Burrunan and make a difference helping to conserve and protect Australia’s amazing marine mammals for future generations to enjoy!

The Burrunan dolphin was discovered, described and named in 2011 by Australian Marine Mammal Conservation Foundation’s Founding Director, Dr Kate Charlton-Robb. Dr Kate’s research has resulted in the Burrunan dolphin being listed as ‘Endangeredunder the Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act. The formal naming of the Burrunan is just the tip of the iceberg.

AMMCF’s Project Burrunan is the only research program of its kind in Victoria, with a special focus on the newly described dolphin species. Our research aims to further protect and conserve this charismatic & endemic dolphin. To achieve this, our research focuses on robust population estimates, levels of residency through genetic and individual dolphin fin identification, assesses movement patterns and potential migration pathways, identifies areas of significance across coastal Victoria and investigates the threats affecting these amazing creatures. Your support helps us conduct this critical research.
