Michael is a researcher at Kenya Marine Mammal Research and Conservation. He is building a database on dolphin and whale activity along the Kenyan coast to protect the animals from climate change. He’s also one of Give One’s ocean heroes whose work we’re highlighting to celebrate World Ocean Month 2022.
Our support helps Michael streamline and scale up his research capabilities and expand his work from a regional to a national level.
Climate change, overfishing, loss of habitat, and unregulated tourism threaten the future of Kenya’s dolphins and whales. Marine mammals are slow to recover from even small decreases in population, and they are crucial to marine ecosystems. It is essential, therefore, to conduct research and change human behavior.
Michael’s work and the work of Give One’s other ocean heroes benefit all of us. Many of the organizations they work for rely on the generosity of donors like you. To learn more about these organizations or make your own contribution by donating, visit Milkywire, our strategic sustainability partner.
