Fomento de la actividad ecoturística de whale watching como modelo de desarrollo económico sostenible mediante la protección y conservación de las poblaciones de cetáceos y su puesta en valor como patrimonio natural de la Macaronesia

Through the already created MARCET Network (MAC / 1.1b / 149), its consistent harmonization of protocols aimed at the conservation of cetacean populations of Macaronesia and the analysis carried out on the current situation of the tourism sector associated with these species, this new initiative (MARCET II Project) is born with the aim of generating management tools at the local and regional levels for the protection of the groups of cetaceans living in marine protected areas and of special interest for the activity, the conservation of the good environmental state of these areas and the development of ecological and environmental sustainability criteria applicable to the ecotourism activity of whale watching, thus leading to its strengthening and value as a model of sustainable economic development in the region.
