Project Description

MegaMove is a global scientific programme involving a concerted network of hundreds of researchers around the globe to advance the long-term conservation of marine megafauna through strategic mitigation of global threats guided by a multi-disciplinary science plan encompassing movement ecology, ecological modelling, statistical physics, oceanography, marine law, and computer data science. MegaMove will implement an already designed framework to create an open resource for interoperable and standardised biologging data sharing, querying and analysing across all stakeholders (researchers, manufacturers, data users) and to create a tool for dynamic prediction of marine megafauna occurrence, ecologically significant areas, and risk mapping at global scale.
