The French coordination team of the Pelagos Sanctuary – Port-Cros National Park in France just released a video to promote an eco-responsible approach of marine mammals. This video has 4 objectives:

1. Raise public awareness on whale watching and its impacts.

2. Promote operators that are labeled High Quality Whale Watching®

3. Offer the general public the opportunity to make an individual commitment as a Pelagos Ambassador.

4. Remind people of the regulations in force: since 1 January 2021, approaching cetaceans within less than 100m is considered as an intentional disturbance and is therefore prohibited within the Pelagos Sanctuary and any other Marine Protected Area.
