Welcome!


At Channel Islands Cetacean Research Unit (CICRU) we pride ourselves in the daily contribution to cetacean research and understanding the health of the oceans. CICRU is a bio-surveillance research group analyzing the health of the ocean through the health of cetaceans. We believe in "One Ocean, One Health."

Our accomplished staff have a wide range of skills and expertise. Our goal is to better understand the marine environment and how this relates to humans. Don't just stand on the sideline get engaged in your environment.
