Description

‘Founded in 2005, TMRC is a small research and conservation outfit conceived to help promote research and conservation of marine mammals and their habitats in Southeast Asia, particularly in the Philippines. It specializes in abundance surveys (using DISTANCE-based line transects and photo-ID), monitoring marine mammal by-catch, studying marine trophic ecology and grass-root level conservation education. It also has expertise in fish biology and fishery-related problems, plankton studies and rapid resource assessments.’ (Need to confirm whether still in operation)
