Historical

The information in the table below represents the historical cetacean population, from all species, combining all animals (living, dead, rehab, etc.) into one inventory.  If you’re having trouble finding a specific animal, please check the transfer page.  On mobile, scrolled down to access these options.  Italics indicate either a deceased individual or an estimated date. Estimated dates are intended to provide a general time frame when the animal was acquired and should not be treated as exact.  Also, be aware that the inclusion of rehab animals may skew certain statistics.  To exclude rehab animals type “public display” in the search bar.  For more information on how to read or use this table, check the inventory guide.

NoteThis inventory may contain inaccuracies or be incomplete due to lack of public sources, misleading information or mistranslation.  If you have a correction or would like to submit information please contact us at contribute@cetabase.org or use our contact form!
