Publications

The Marine Mammal Foundation pride themselves on cutting edge science. We achieve this via our robust applied research programs and publications in international and national peer-reviewed journals.

In addition, we believe communication is key, so the MMF Team attend and present at numerous scientific and marine mammal related conference and workshops.
