This dataset contains the records of marine mammal encounters made by local fishermen, tourists, ship crews and staff of marine protected areas in Vietnam.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 57 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

This is one deliverable of the BIFA5_027 project
|Title||BIFA5_027 Marine mammal data|
|Study Area Description||Reported encounters were inside Vietnam EEZ only|
|Design Description||Data were collected through iNaturalist and Google AppSheet.|
The personnel involved in the project:
Marine mammal encounters were collected through iNaturalist and Google Appsheet platforms.
|Study Extent||Reported encounters were inside Vietnam EEZ only|
|Quality Control||CBES staff and collaborators verified each record.|
Method step description:
- Data from iNautralist was searched and extracted through iNaturalist website using provided search tool on this webpage. Data from Google Appsheet: Custom Google Appsheet forms (in Vietnamese) were developed and distributed to 20 marine protected areas staff via an offline workshop in Phu Quoc. Those staff used those forms to record marine mammal encounters in the respected areas. Data (coordinates, date and time, photographs) were automatically synchronized to a Google Sheet file. CBES staff and collaborators verified each record and contacted the reporters whenever necessary.
