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.

“So true. Sometimes us humans forget that we share the world with these amazing animals that were here long before us. Sharks don't infest the waters, they live there.”

  • Dugong party 📸 by @cameronjamesbarton. -  a mother and calf cruising around Ningaloo reef. 
The dugong is a marine mammal, and it’s closest living relative Steller’s sea cow, was hunted to extinction in the 18th century. 
Dugongs are slow to reproduce and have been massively affected by hunting and habitat degradation. 
@seasense_ngo established a dugong monitoring network in Tanzania, in an area known as the last refuge. 
Their work also includes DNA analysis and comparison with other dugong populations, habitat surveys and population surveys.

  • Gorgeous photo of a pod of orcas, by @chelseamayerphotography. 📷 “As close to a perfect moment as I can imagine. Flat calm seas, a rose gold sunset, and wild orcas swimming all around me. They were so close that I switched to my wide angle lens because I couldn’t fit them in my frame- close enough to touch if I had dared.” #discoverocean #whales #whalewatching #visualsofearth #orcas #killerwhales #oceangiants #saveouroceans #saveourseas #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography
  • 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.
