Description

MegaMove will develop a global approach to synthesise global tracking datasets and deliver near real-time diagnostics on risks for marine megafauna at a global scale and provide a new frontier in dynamic marine spatial management to significantly improve conservation. MegaMove will increasing our understanding of how marine megafauna movements vary with environmental changes and reveal collective movement properties and patterns. Results will demonstrate how big data in marine telemetry can be integrated for analyses and translated into ecologically significant behaviours. MegaMove will harness the collective power of existing and new tracking data to address global scientific and societal problems, has recently highlighted by the UN.
