Research forms the basis of our organisation. We collect data at sea daily, as the weather allows, to support scientific studies while updating the conservation status of the marine mammals. Our work is also done non-intrusively to protect animals from external stress. We work with external organisations, including boat tour companies, to develop the body of research for ethical tourism.
To increase awareness and understanding about the marine environment, we conduct educational programs with schools, organisations and other sea stakeholders, to provide opportunities to lessen mankind's impact on the ocean.
AIMM participates in joint oceanic expeditions with other organisations, researchers and governments to make improvements to policies concerning marine life. Many of these expeditions have positively impacted ethical decisions made to facilitate the needs of humans while ensuring sustainability of the seas.
