Marine megafauna such as sharks, whales and turtles are impacted by human activities like coastal development, pollution, fishing and shipping. However, the extent of such impacts is unknown, mostly because our understanding of these animal’s movements is limited.

The Marine Megafauna Movement Analytical Program (MMMAP) aims to significantly improve our understanding of marine megafauna movement at a global scale to assist the conservation and management of these ecologically important, charismatic and threatened marine species.
