About us

We are an international team of researchers with years of experience in study and conservation of marine mammals. Since several years now we work in the oil and gas sector as MMO (Marine Mammals Observer), PSO (Protected Species Observer) and PAM operators (Passive Acoustic Monitoring), in the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean on board ships and rigs for survey and extraction platforms installation.

Our role on board is to find and identify the marine fauna and advise about the possible mitigation measures to adopt according to the international guidelines. We also inform and sensitize on board personal about conservation awareness.

All our team members possess a high formation in internationally known research centres and have all the required certifications for offshore work.
