We currently have 15 RABEN teams, and we are proud to say that in the last 11 years, our RABEN teams have rescued 81 whales.

So far this season we have rescued 7 whales, 4 in Bay Banderas, 2 in Los Cabos, and 1 in La Paz:

These rescues are thanks to the workshops that the teams receive each year before the start of the whale season.

This season we trained a total of 110 people in workshops and drills to respond to large whale entanglements in La Paz, Mazatlán, and  Banderas Bay.

We were able to accomplish this thanks to the local support of RABEN members and staff from the Protected Natural Areas (CONANP), funding from RIU Hotels & Resorts, World Wildlife Fund Mexico (WWF), and Fundación Ecológica Biomar.

RABEN Uniforms and rescue tools

It is necessary to have a uniform and tools in order to rescue whales safely and quickly.

Uniforms and equipment was distributed to the different RABEN team members, including 200 pairs of gloves, 200 t-shirts, 200 caps, 15 Pelican-type hermetic boxes, and 15 first aid kits.

What should you do if you come across an entangled whale?

It is critical to receive reports on time and with accurate information in order to save the whales. Please help us spread this video. The most important thing to remember is that you should never go into the water to try to save a whale because you would be putting your life in danger. These types of reports should only be attended by those who have received the necessary training and authorization (RABEN).

We have a new cell phone number where you can report an entangled whale via WhatsApp.

Help us spread this video so that more people can see it.

Whales and RABEN members are counting on you! Without a proper report we cannot rescue the whales.

Thank you for your help!

We would like to express our gratitude to the CONANP staff, our RABEN members for their support, RIU Hotels & Resorts, World Wildlife Fund Mexico (WWF), and Biomar Foundation for their assistance in carrying out the RABEN workshops.
