AIMM is a Portuguese environmental non-governmental and not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the research and conservation of marine species and ecosystems such as dolphins, whales, sharks, sea turtles and marine birds. Founded in 2010 and based in the Algarve region, AIMM aims to be a reference for marine research and conservation, and education about the marine environment, promoting activities and establishing partnerships that, in a cooperative way, enhance the understanding of issues related to the marine environment. AIMM has developed most of its projects in the Algarve region, but also in other regions of Portugal and outside the country, particularly in the Atlantic. They work in collaboration with national and international entities, such as maritime agents, administrative authorities, dolphin watching companies, other NGOs and public institutions. In cooperation, they try to promote a sustainable and safer environment for marine species. See their instagram account at Their Youtube channel includes several videos well worth watching.
