Abstract

This nation-wide dataset contains data on cetacean strandings recorded on
the Ukrainian coast of the Black sea and the Sea of Azov by researchers
from a few research institutions (Ukrainian Scientific Centre of Ecology of
the Sea, Institute of Marine Biology, Sсhmalhausen Institute of Zoology),
researchers of protected areas (National Nature Parks “Bіloberezhzhya
Svyatoslava” and “Meotyda”) and individually communicated by
researchers and other citizens (local residents and visitors), all the
evidences confirmed by photographs and geographical coordinates. Also,
the photographically and geographically verified data from social network
(Facebook) and news web sites were used (gathered by NGO BioEcoLinks).
Creation of the dataset was recommended by the Research Council on
Marine Mammal Protection and the Ministry of Ecology and National
Resources of Ukraine
