Collecting, sharing, exploring to inform marine mammal conservation and policy.

The Australian Marine Mammal Centre has developed database applications to support marine mammal conservation and policy initiatives. These applications:

  • provide the public with summarised information on the biology of Australian marine mammals;
  • facilitate data-driven management and conservation decisions;
  • collate, protect and archive data;
  • assisting with reporting obligations to the International Whaling Commission and under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act
  • encouraging and facilitating collaboration, analysis and reporting.
