How to tell a dolphin from a porpoise? and Singapore's other wild marine mammals!

New ID sheets provided by the awesome Singapore Wild Marine Mammal Survey (SWiMMS) helps us identify and report sightings of our wild marine mammals!

With their kind permission, these resources are now on slideshare for your download.


If you prefer a simpler ID sheet, they've also provided one.


There is also a full brochure with details on how to identify the different mammals, more about their behaviour to note, a map to help you locate your sightings, and a form to fill up about your sighting.



This brochure is also available in Chinese.



The brochure is also available in Malay.


So please look out for our marine mammals and send your sightings to the SWiMMS team! If you would like hardcopies of these materials, or their lovely posters, please visit their website for more contact and other details: http://www.tmsi.nus.edu.sg/mmrl.
