OUR GLOBAL
COMMUNITY

Meet our 'MegaMovers'

The MegaMove membership continues to grow!
We are about 400 'MegaMovers' from ~200 institutions from 50 countries around the world - the largest community of researchers tracking marine megafauna in the world. Together, we have created a resource to enable the advancement of global conservation of marine megafauna.

Get to know the team of 'MegaMovers' here!
