CétaMada is a Malagasy association for marine mammals protection in Indian Ocean. It leads scientific research programs and tourists and local population raising sensitization.
Between July and September, the humpback whales return to their place of birth, in the warm water of Madagascar, to give birth and reproduction, after feeding in the Antarctic Ocean.
Every year, Princesse Bora Lodge and Spa, by joining with CétaMada, offers the unique opportunity to meet these cetaceans. An eco-guide, a whale specialist, stays for the season in the Lodge to supervise expeditions, collect scientific data and lead conferences.
Thanks to your interest and to your participation, you will actively contribute to the protection of these giants of the seas, financing the NGO and increasing the scientific database.
The specialists will show you how they work and collect these data: photo identification, GPS tracking, songs recording with hydrophone, genetic collecting, behavioral study, etc.
