The Cetacean Observation Program called PROCETUS  was founded in Ensenada on April 2015 thanks to a motivated marine ecologist interested in conducting research on marine mammals of the Baja California.

Our mission is to contribute to the conservation of cetaceans in Bahia de los Angeles through research and community involvement.

The objective of the program is to conduct research and monitoring on photo identification, behavior and distribution of the cetaceans of the Canal de Ballenas in Bahia de los Angeles,Baja California, Mexico in order to share and improve the knowledge of these animals in the area as well as to contribute in their management and conservation.
