Marine Megafauna Foundation
 
Marine Megafauna Foundation  
 
 

The Marine Megafauna Foundation was created in 2009 to research, protect and conserve the large populations of marine megafauna found along the Mozambican coastline. ‘Megafauna’ are large marine species such as sharks, rays, marine mammals and turtles.

These animals are key components of marine ecosystems but, as they are long-lived and have low reproductive rates, their populations are usually the first to be reduced by human pressures. Fortunately, they are also amongst the most charismatic animals on the planet and engender a high degree of public interest in their biology and conservation, making them useful ambassadors for the whole marine environment. The Manta Ray and Whale Shark Research Centre is based at Tofo Beach, Mozambique, at Casa Barry Lodge. Tofo Beach is a major international hot-spot for both manta rays and whale sharks.
