Welcome to the Ceta-Base!

The Ceta-Base website is intended to serve as an informational resource and database of captive held cetaceans around the world. Each database or inventory is organized by species: Luga'logue (Belugas), Or'census (Killer Whales) and the Phin'ventory (Dolphins & Porpoises). Within each species database there are three population categories - Living, Deceased and Historical. By default each inventory will start out on the Living Population of animals, living population will reflect the current inventory of animals and any given facility. If you're interested in animals that have passed on you'll want to look at the Deceased Population for each species. Finally, the Historical Population will combine both the Living and Deceased animals to provide a historical record of animals held at each respective facility throughout the years.

The most recent changes to the database are noted below.
