Help us with your donation | In the context of species conservation, aerial surveys are a proven method for estimating the population of a population. This is especially true for dolphin species. Basically, it is about the use of aircraft that fly at low altitude and from which human observers can see and count the animals they see in the sea.

In the past, YAQU PACHA has already supported aerial survey Toninhas in Brazil and Argentina in estimating the population of the endangered La Plata dolphins – Franciscana – Toninhas. So far, there is only a gap in population assessment in Uruguay. From March to April 2023 , a group of biologists from Brazil and Uruguay will fly along the Uruguayan coast to count La Plata dolphins. It will be the first time that data will be collected on the population of this species in Uruguay .

Aerial surveys are very expensive. They are carried out by companies that rent out aircraft.
One hour of aerial survey Toninhas costs 1000 EURO. A total of 43 flight hours are planned, which means that the entire project will cost 43000 EURO.
Thanks to various non-governmental organizations and other sponsors such as Nuremberg Zoo and Verein der Tiergartenfreunde Nürnberg e.V. , 35000 EURO have already been collected, i.e. we still have to collect 8000 EURO.
The La Plata dolphin is the most endangered dolphin species in South America and urgently needs our help!
YAQU PACHA coordinates conservation efforts in Europe to save this dolphin species.
