The Minke Whale Project Fund
The Minke Whale Project (MWP) Fund is a non-profit research fund set up by James Cook University to support research into dwarf minke whale biology, behaviour and sustainable wildlife tourism interactions. Donations can be tax deductible for Australian residents*. Your donation will help provide basic equipment for conducting our field research to answer important questions for the conservation of dwarf minke whales and sustainable swim-with-minke whales tourism. It will also support MWP postgraduate students’ project expenses, and it will help the MWP to continue research into sustainable dwarf minke whale tourism into the future.
