How We Can Help
MMF’s vision is a world in which marine life and humans thrive together and we aspire to attain it by saving threatened marine megafauna. ‘Megafauna’ are large marine species such as sharks, rays, marine mammals and sea turtles.
If you're a journalist working on a story about topics such as marine megafauna, plastic pollution and ocean conservation and are in need of statistics, information, expert comments or imagery, please get in touch with our media team who will be happy to help. We have high-resolution images and videos available and can also assist film crews on location.
