About Sibylline Oceans
Respect and protection of marine life (whales, dolphins, seabirds, turtles, sharks ...) distressed (stranding, oil spill, the consequences of human activity...) and its environment by veterinary medicine, research and education.
Alert (update 08/23/2018) Due to the wrong functional button payment of Carenews (green; above on the right; thank you for not using it anymore) Sibylline lost several thousand euros of donations without we knew it. We thus opted for a serious service provider, who offers secure transactions. Here is the link (in english) :

Have a nice visit !
Our actions in the field :
- Train rescuers ready to intervene in case of an stranding event, so that rescuers and animals are not endangered by bad practices. In the case of dolphins or whales, beaching or stranding is an absolute emergency, hence the need of not to waste a single second.
-Training of veterinaries located in coastal municipalities to intervene on marine life, including whales. It can not be improvised a "whale doctor," we train for these emergencies. - Provide medical care to each animal found stranded - Reunion Island : discover and identify the sources of pollution that might explain the presence of bull sharks, specie pointed out as responsible in accidents - Development of shark repellents : working on the absence of negative side effects of these devices. This is not because it works that we should not consider the potential collateral damage. - Identify cosmetics containing squalene from animal (shark liver), determine cytotoxicity (neoplastic potential in cells) of each product and provide a consumer guide.
Abroad : advisory role or intervention in other countries : Central America, South America, Europe, etc ...
The fundraising is in addition to the previous interventions, to finance : - Repair and transformation of a boat (offered) into a hospital for marine wildlife - Financing of intervention materials on beaches and hospitalization in situ (coast) - Financing of veterinary portable equipment : radio devices, ultrasound, laboratory hematology and biochemistry, thermal camera, ultrasonic apparatus, anesthesia machine - Finance a portable device processing plastics macro-waste into oil. The plastic pollution is dramatic for marine wildlife. - Make educational movies.
