All about firmm

The Swiss foundation firmm was established in 1998 to study and protect marine mammals and their natural habitats, the oceans. Our aim is in our name - foundation for information and research on marine mammals - we do not only study whales and dolphin, but we also want to pass on our knowledge to as many people as possible.


We see ourselves as platform for scientists and non-scientists, who can join us to share and deepen their knowledge on whales and dolphins. At firmm locations in Spain and Switzerland, we do research, take people on excursions and organize numerous informational events. By doing this we hope to sensitize more and more people to the state of our oceans and their inhabitants.
