The fourteenth celebration of the International Day of the Baltic Harbour Porpoise

On Sunday, 15th May 2016, the International Day of the Baltic Harbour Porpoise (IDBHP) was celebrated around the shores of the Baltic Sea for the fourteenth time.

Celebrations and related activities were held in Finland in the Särkänniemi Dolphinarium, in Lithuania at the Lithuanian Sea Museum, in Germany at the Timmendorfer Strand and in Poland at an open air event in the city of Gdynia.

A Facebook event page was created to provide support and gather information related to the different activities. Local organizers in the countries around the Baltic used the page to communicate and spread news about their events. Attached is a compilation of the reports on events that were sent to ASCOBANS.
