Mission Statement

Ensuring a future for large marine vertebrates in the Philippines and South East Asia, through sharing research-based solutions with communities and governments SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. OCEAN CONSERVATION. COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT

Description

Large Marine Vertebrates Research Institute Philippines (LAMAVE) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the research and conservation of marine megafauna and the marine environment in the Philippines.

We believe in sharing knowledge to reach conservation goals.

LAMAVE focuses its efforts on charismatic marine megafauna, using it as an umbrella species to protect the wider marine environment. We identify hotspots and quantify populations of species including whale sharks, turtles and other animals. We use technology, such as satellite and acoustic tags to help determine key habitat sites, home ranges and migratory corridors of marine species. The results are shared with governments and stakeholders, to work together to minimise impacts anddevelop tools forconservation management such as creating or zoning marine protected areas or advising policy. For more information, check out our latest publications, or click on the animal icons to learn more about species-specific research.
