Shannon Dolphin and Wildlife Foundation

Welcome to the website of the Shannon Dolphin and Wildlife Foundation. The SDWF was established to develop and provide educational awareness and conservation of the Shannon dolphins and other wildlife in the region.

On this website you will find information on the bottlenose dolphins in the Shannon Estuary including their conservation management, ongoing research and monitoring and efforts to increase people's awareness of, and interest in, the Shannon dolphins which are a small, isolated and genetically discrete population.
