Dominica makes waves with world’s first sperm whale sanctuary: A triumph for conservation and marine harmony

In a historic move, Dominica has carved out a sanctuary for its cherished residents – the 200 sperm whales that grace its seas year-round. Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit proudly declares the world’s inaugural sperm whale reserve, spanning 300 square miles.

This haven, free from commercial shipping and fishing, safeguards these ancient mariners, ensuring their lineage endures. Artisanal fishing is permitted responsibly, while tourists can joyfully witness and swim alongside these majestic creatures in sustainable numbers. Dominica’s pledge secures a brighter future for both its prized citizens and the marine ecosystem.
