Physalus is a non-stock non-profit organization registered in Rome, Italy (TIN 97507360580).

Physalus was created in 2008 by conservationists and marine animal veterinarians to support conservation through scientific and educational initiatives. We work to raise awareness for marine conservation in Italy and empower early career researchers to build capacity and advance professionally. We also organize workshops in Italy for marine mammal research and conservation, stranding rescue trainings, and beach clean ups.
