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.

  • LAMAVE (@lamaveproject) Researcher Joshua Rambahiniarison positions a Remote Underwater Video (RUV) System which LAMAVE and partners are using to monitor a manta cleaning station in the Philippines. The RUV allows the capture of footage and potential photo-IDs of manta rays visiting the cleaning station. Collecting data like this is crucial if scientists are to better understand the manta ray populations in the Philippines and how best to protect them.

  • Repost: @simonagerphotography • “Even though young Galapagos fur seals are not weaned until at least the age of 2, pups begin to make trips into the ocean at 6 months and begin to forage for themselves at 12 months. However, pups continue to rely on milk as a major form of nourishment until they are fully weaned and become independent, which typically occurs between the ages of 2 and 3.” #galapagosislands #furseal #sealegacy #conservation #sealpup #marineconservation #marinebiology #marinelife #pup #ocean #research #saveourseas #saveouroceans #galapagos
  • • MMF whale shark researcher @clareprebble: “Every whale shark can be individually identified by the spot patterns on their sides. We upload our photos to the global database at www.whaleshark.org so we can track them all. There's now more than 10,000 whale sharks in the database!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's not just researchers who can do this, everyone can contribute their sightings! If you've seen whale shark, and got some good photos of their sides behind their gills go ahead and upload them! Then you can find out who it was!”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Sea turtles are air-breathing reptiles that have lungs. This is why they surface to breathe. 
A foraging turtle can spend 5-40 minutes underwater, whilst a sleeping turtle can remain for 4-7 hours. 
When surfacing to breathe, a turtle can quickly refill its lungs with a single explosive exhalation and rapid inhalation.
