Founded in 1995, ProDelphinus is a not-for-profit Peruvian organization based in Lima.

ProDelphinus is committed to the conservation of threatened and endangered marine fauna. Beginning in 1995, ProDelphinus, together with organizations such as the Peruvian Center for Cetacean Research CEPEC, participated actively in a campaign to legally ban the dolphins take and consumption in Peru.

Currently, ProDelphinus conducts projects on research and conservation of threatened and endangered marine species, such as sea turtles, marine otters, cetaceans, seabirds and sharks. These species are either permanent residents to Peruvian waters or just temporary visitors as they continue along their migration routes. Studies of the interactions between these species and Peruvian fisheries and the ways to prevent it, form a major component of ProDelphinus’ current research.
