The American Cetacean Society engages in educational, conservational, and scientific pursuits for the purpose of expanding scientific knowledge of whales, dolphins, porpoises, and related creatures. Services offered by the Monterey Bay Chapter include monthly meetings open to the public, featuring presentations about whales, dolphins and related aspects of the marine environment.


We are very grateful to Laurie Huelga for designing and developing the new ACS Monterey Bay website.
