Santuario dei CetaceiThe stretch of sea between the Ligurian coast, The Corse coast and the Provence boasts the highest concentration of cetaceans among all Italian seas and in all probability is the richest wildlife area in the Mediterranean. To preserve the marine mammals and their habitats in the region has created a sanctuary for cetaceans in the Ligurian Sea , a protected area that lies mostly in international waters and has the goal to protect 100,000 square kilometers from Toulon in France , Western Cape Falcon in Sardinia and Tuscany Chiarone Fosso. The secretariat is located in Genoa, Palazzo Ducale on the premises made available by the Region of Liguria. The proposed introduction of a system of protection for cetaceans in the Corsica basin between Liguria and Provence, was born with the name of Project Pelagos and is presented in Milan March 23, 1990 by Tethys Research Institute, a non-profit organization for the study and protection of the marine environment and by the European Foundation for the Rotary for the Environment, which has funded a preliminary study. Already the summer of 1988, however, the institutional Tethys starts a series of research on cetaceans in the Italian seas, and especially in the basin and Ligurian-Provencal current, which is clear, in terms of frequency of sighting the net superiority of this region of Italy on the other seas. In 1992 a census on the surface of the future sanctuary, which allows the estimation of numerical dolphins (32,800 copies) and fin whales (830 individuals), in the area during the summer. This leads to the institution in 1999 of the Sanctuary, the appointment of a competent authority to coordinate the management, which oversees the adoption of appropriate measures (including the prohibition of deliberate and intentional disturbance catches for research purposes, the ' use of pelagic driftnet, the pollution control, regulation and possibly a ban on offshore racing, the regulation of whale-watching activities, and finally the encouragement of research programs and campaigns to raise awareness of the great public) to ensure to marine mammals and their habitats in the region a favorable conservation status. During several research campaigns, inside the sanctuary, were seen more than nineteen different species of mammals, including Bottlenose dolphins, Common dolphins, killer whales, minke and sperm whales. Of these species, seven stationed permanently in the Whale Sanctuary and another five are regularly advised during excursions.
