Natural science illustrations of marine mammals

Created for the CARI'MAM project, 37 natural science illustrations by Maël Dewynter are at your disposal.

They are provided in .tif format and you can download them via the links below in the form of 4 zip files: mysticetes (baleen whales), odontocetes (toothed whales) and other marine mammals.

All of them are present in the Greater Caribbean Region, but not necessarily in the Agoa Sanctuary. Will you be able to find those that have been observed in the French West Indies? A clue: they are the ones presented on the "The species of the Sanctuary" page of this site.
