AIMM-Portugal Marine Environment Research Association
Company (0-10 employees)
The Marine Environment Research Association – AIMM – was found in 2010 and is a non-for profit, non-governmental organization with international scope, focussed on the research and conservation of marine species that inhabit the Atlantic Ocean, mainly whales and dolphins. Currently is running an on-going study of cetaceans in the South of Portugal (Algarve) to obtain baseline information on species occurrence, behavior and social structure of local populations.
AIMM aims to be a reference for research, education and conservation of the Atlantic Ocean wildlife and environment and to promote a healthier and safer environment for marine species, specially marine mammals, by the adoption of a responsible code of conduct in cetacean related tourism activities.
Our mission is collecting data at sea to support scientific studies, update conservation status and knowledge of marine mammal species, developing education programs, activities and partnerships among sea stakeholders to empower awareness and understanding of the marine environment.
AIMM provides the opportunity to international participants live, learn and experience working at sea conditions with experienced marine biologists and researchers, in an environmental friendly and multicultural environment, actively playing a role in the marine environment research and conservation.
