  • History:

    Atlantic White-Sided Dolphins are found in the colder northern waters of the Atlantic Ocean. They travel in large groups called “pods”. Unlike their relatives, the Pacific White-Sided Dolphins, Atlantic White-Sided Dolphins are not typically kept in captivity.

    They are currently considered a “Least Concern” species by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and are believed to number between 200,000 and 300,000 individuals. However, it is believed that ocean pollution may be harming the population of these dolphins. They were traditionally hunted in Norway and Newfoundland for their meat and blubber, though these countries have now ended their hunts.
