About Us

The Large Marine Vertebrates Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to marine conservation through scientific research and education. Using proven scientific data collection methods, we research the abundance and habitats of cetaceans, whale sharks, turtles, mobula rays, and manta rays in the Philippines.  We strive to identify critical threats facing these species. Our researchers and volunteers work closely with local governments, communities, businesses, and tourists to ensure the conservation of large marine animals through science, education, and advocacy.  The scientific data we gather is used to advise local governments on conservation policy and legislation, to counsel local and regional authorities on sustainable tourism, and to describe important aspects of the biology of marine animals.
