Who are we?

Ocean Giants Trust is an international conservation charity, which protects the ocean’s largest and most threatened marine species, and their biologically important habitats.

What do we do?

Responding to the global threat of extinction to some of the most iconic species on the planet, we believe that only through integrating international research, with local marine conservation and education will Ocean Giants survive and thrive.

Who do we work with?

Working exclusively with both internationally renowned scientists, and local project partners we offer a new, refreshing and more effective approach to the understanding and protection of Ocean Giants.

  • This here is a lemon shark, spotted just off of Heron Island, Australia. • DYK that lemons are very social species, often seen in groups & have a structured hierarchy system based on size & sex. • They get their name from their unusual colouring, which helps camouflage them against the sandy sea floor. • They often hunt together, in what is known as a “feeding frenzy”, attacking prey in a coordinated group. .

  • Repost from @marinemegafauna:
Wilma has seen many tourists in her life. And she has the scars to show for it.
*
The dangers faced by #whalesharks like Wilma, #dolphins, #turtles and other marine animals from irresponsible wildlife tourism are growing every day.
*
As the number of people clamouring to hey closer to these beautiful animals increases, so does the number is clashes between humans and wildlife.

  • DYK there are 9 different species of mobula (or devil) rays? 
They can dive to depths of nearly 2000m (6500ft) when feeding and can perform surface acrobatics when communicating. 
They are ovoviviparous, meaning they give birth live young, and mums can be pregnant for over 2 years. 
We think they’re pretty incredible.
