Our Mission:
To promote conservation of marine mammals and their habitats through scientific research and educational outreach.

Our Vision:
1) To conduct scientific field studies in the Bahamas to increase the understanding of species' biology and conservation needs.
2) To disseminate results that raises awareness and appreciation of marine mammals in the Bahamas and ultimately influences policy makers.
3) To remain a small professional non-profit organisation, proportional to the needs of the Bahamas.

BMMRO has been conducting a long-term study documenting the occurrence, distribution, and abundance of marine mammals around the islands of The Bahamas since 1991. Currently based in Sandy Point on Great Abaco Island, this project provides the only comprehensive documentation of marine mammal fauna in this part of the world.

The Bahamas Marine Mammal Research Organisation uses the help of volunteers to achieve some of its' goals. Our volunteers join us through several different types of internship programmes, and include foreign nationals, Bahamian high school students, college and university students.

We also run an environmental children's camp for the local children of Sandy Point, allowing us to help educate and share our nature and conservation ethos with our community.
