About Us

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. OCEAN CONSERVATION. COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT

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 siteshome 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 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.
