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.

  • Incredible photo!! Repost: @alexkyddphoto •  Javanese cownose rays (Rhinoptera javanica) ~ An extraordinary encounter with an animal thats been on my Ningaloo Reef bucket list for a while. The rays looked like they may have been mating or courting but its yet to be confirmed. I’ve been told stories of these rays schooling in the hundreds here on Ningaloo but had yet to ever see them. I’m constantly amazed at the variety of marine life you can encounter here on the Ningaloo. The collection of photos i took in this 5 minute encounter are probably my favourite images I’ve taken in a long time.

#ExpeditionShark4 "Scientists from #LAMAVE,  @lifeintubbataha and @marinemegafauna have successfully tagged a 3.5-meter tiger shark and three grey reef sharks as part of a long-term study in Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park." A big thank you to all parties involved that made this research possible. A special thank you goes to the Tubbataha Managment Office and the Rangers of Tubbataha Reefs. .

  • Repost: @dserradell_photo • “During winter, from the end of November until the end of December/ beginning of January, hundreds of mobulas (mainly Mobula munkiana) visit the coast of Cabo San Lucas showing several aerial displays and swimming all synchronised coinciding with changing water temperatures.
Either from underwater or from the shore, witnessing that event is one of those things that remains in your retina for the rest of your life.
I love la Baja and all the creatures that live in it!” .
