Creation of Local Cetacean Fact Sheets

Project Name: Creation of Local Cetacean Fact Sheets

Project Number: 2

Related Programme: Developing the Desire & Ability to Protect Nature

Project Description: This project aims at creating a fact sheet for each species of whale or dolphin that may be found in Trinidad and Tobago waters. These sheets will be made available to the public on our website so that interested people will be able to learn more about our local cetaceans.

Project Objectives:

  1. To create a fact sheet for each cetacean species which may be using local waters and to make these available to the public through our website.

Measure of Success:

  1. Completed fact sheets for all local cetacean species are available to the public on our website.


  • A design will be created for the fact sheets including the information desired for each species.
  • Relevant information will be filled in on each fact sheet.
  • The completed sheets will be posted up on the website.


We welcome volunteers to help with the creation of these sheets. The more people we have working on the project the sooner we'll have the information available to the public.
When you volunteer you will be in charge of filling out at least one fact sheet in Microsoft Word. The fact sheet and information you need will be provided to you and you will be required to look through it and type the relevant information into the appropriate sections. When you have completed the form you then email it back to us.
The duration of the project will depend on the number and efficiency of volunteers but we hope it can be finished by the end of March 2010.
