Marine Megafauna Conservation Organisation (MMCO) is a non-profit organization that started its activity almost 10 years ago. Their main objective is the conservation of the biodiversity and integrity of the marine ecosystem through science, education and dialogue with the authorities for introduction of measures to reduce the threats for whales, dolphins, sharks and turtles.

The project  "Protection of Threatened Marine Megafauna species in Mauritius" aims to preserve the local populations of 5 vulnerable species and their habitats: sperm whales, 2 species of sea turtles and 2 species of reef sharks.

The fund will be allocated on research to develop scientifically-based recommendations for authorities, educational and awareness-raising activities and involvement in conservation activities of local communities and tourists and the promotion of responsible and sustainable eco-tourism.
