In 2002, the Agreement on the Conservation of Small Cetaceans in the Baltic, North East Atlantic, Irish and North Seas (UNEP/ASCOBANS) declared the third Sunday in May of each year as the “International Day of the Baltic Harbour Porpoise” (IDBHP) in order to raise awareness of the critical situation of the populations of Harbour Porpoises (Phocoena phocoena), the only species of cetacean native to the Baltic Sea. The #IDBHP offers a good occasion to highlight the critical status of the Baltic population of the harbour porpoise and the threats to its survival. Effective conservation measures can benefit the harbour porpoise population, other species sharing its habitat and the ecosystem of the Baltic Sea as a whole.
