Research. Conservation. Community

We study large marine animals and use the results to empower communities and goverNments to conserve the philippine SEAS.

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

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 and develop tools for conservation management such as creating or zoning marine protect areas or advising policy.
