  1. Hi,

    My name is Clara and I'm from Peru. Looking for images of river dolphin I found yours, I'm actually working in a Peruvian NGO focused on conservation and now we are preparing some guides for environmental education about river dolphins in Peru, so I was wondering if you can share with me the images of the Inia geoffrensis and sotalia fluviatilis. I hope it is possible and for sure I will cite you in the guide because of the illustrations. Thanks and you can message me to claraoa.2502@gmail.com

  2. Dear Ida, is a pleasure for me see all the draw creations!! I am Yurasi from Venezuela, I work with the species Sotalia guianensis in Maracaibo Lake for my PhD, the project was named ProyectoSotalia you can found on facebook.
    Your pictures of sotalia, the coast and the river species are the best I've seen, are beautiful, so, I want to know if I can use the image in the educational material that I am going to use during my project with the community, besides I would like to use the image to put it in tshirts. All this with the proper recognition of your authorship of course. If you accept, Could you send me the image of both sotalia guianensis and fluviatilis? my email contac: yurasialejandra@gmail.com
    Thanks in advance!
