Nova Atlantis

Nova Atlantis Foundation is a Dutch research institute, based on Pico island, at the Azores. By conducting scientific research, the foundation aims to provide information on the status of the cetacean species of the Azores and their marine habitat. By providing data on cetacean population size, habitat use and behaviour to the EU, local authorities, the scientific community and environmental NGO’s, we aim to aid in the conservation of the coastal and pelagic waters of the Azores as Marine Protected Areas. On Pico, the Risso’s Dolphin Research Centre of the Foundation is a meeting point where scientists and students can work on the research and conservation of cetaceans and the unique marine ecosystem of the Azores.
