March 28th, 2015

CETAMADA, association for the protection of marine mammals in Madagascar and the Indian Ocean, holds true to its motif. As expressed by its scientific leader Anjara Saloma, “we can only protect what we know”.

Behaviour studies, migration studies, genetic studies, acoustic studies, stranding network, participatory science, applied science –  in order to protect marine mammals in danger of extinction the scope is wide, the approach interdisciplinary.

This 3 minutes movie presents the work of CETAMADA in Sainte Marie Island, located on the east coast of Madagascar, where humpback whales arrive to breed and feed annually between June and September.
