About Us

AIMM is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation that seeks to protect marine species through our research and conservation efforts, especially of those inhabiting the Atlantic Ocean.


Founded in 2010, AIMM's work has expanded from our base in South Portugal to the coasts of Africa, with the focus of our work being marine mammals in their natural environment.

Our Mission

To protect marine mammals through scientific research, and by educating and providing opportunities for people to better understand the part of the earth we don’t live in, but are interconnected with.

Our Vision

Is for AIMM to:
