Whale Watching Industry Research

Dolphin Research Australia along with the Centre for Tourism, Leisure and Work at Southern Cross University are working together to examine the structure and management of the commercial whale (and dolphin) watching industry in Australia.  The research investigates everything from the views and perceptions of environmental resource managers and the whale watching operators to the education and interpretive programs offered during tours.  The research hopes to improve the standards of practice of the Australian whale watching industry while providing for the needs of the industry itself.
