Marine Megafauna Foundation

TIE projects with


The Marine Megafauna Foundation was created in 2009 to research, protect and conserve the large populations of marine megafauna found along the Mozambican coastline. ‘Megafauna’ are large marine species such as sharks, rays, marine mammals and turtles.

These animals are key components of marine ecosystems but, as they are long-lived and have low reproductive rates, their populations are usually the first to be reduced by human pressures. Fortunately, they are also amongst the most charismatic animals on the planet and engender a high degree of public interest in their biology and conservation, making them useful ambassadors for the whole marine environment.


Developing materials to introduce MMF to potential donors

In October 2016, Wieden+Kennedy’s Lauren Smith spent a month in Tofo, Mozambique, working with the Marine Megafauna Foundation to develop the materials that would help spread the word about their purpose and attract potential donors. Read her case study here.
