Who We Are

MEGAPTERA is a French association dedicated to the observation, knowledge and protection of marine mammals of the Indian Ocean. The MEGAPTERA approach was developed following the awareness of the richness, the specificity and the lack of indicators relating to these cetacean populations in the Indian Ocean region. The key words are: RESEARCH, EDUCATION, and SUSTAINABLE CONSERVATION.
Since its inception, MEGAPTERA has developed numerous programs for the study, awareness and conservation of marine mammals in Mayotte, Madagascar and Comoros. Thus, in order to continue its action to safeguard a world heritage that are these giants of seas of 50 million years, MEGAPTERA and its partners propose to you to participate in their project by providing your support.
