Michael is a Researcher who is building a database on dolphin and whale activity along the Kenyan coast, to protect the animals from the effects of climate change.
Michael will not only be able to streamline and increase his research capabilities, but also expand his work from a regional to a national level.
With threats such as climate change, overfishing, loss of habitat and unregulated tourism, the future of the dolphins and whales of Kenya is undeniably uncertain. Marine mammals are slow to recover from small drops in numbers and they are crucial to marine ecosystems. Therefore it is essential to conduct research and change human behavior.
