Clas marine science, a branch of marine biology, has a special interest in marine mammals.
Clas Marine Science is an educational, non-profit organisation that brings together members from the world of marine science and their dedicated partners.
We are a network of organisations working together to develop marine mammal research, conservation, conservation management and education in Australia.
The Clas team includes marine biologists and oceanographers, marine mammal biologists, marine ecologists, conservation ecologists and other marine biologists.
Cla Marine Science was founded in 2013 to increase awareness and education about marine mammals and marine conservation in Australia, and to promote research and conservation.
Its main focus is marine mammal conservation in the South East and to encourage more participation in marine mammal studies and education.
Clos Marine Science’s main funding comes from a range of sources including grants from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the Australian Institute of Marine Science, the Natural Resources Conservation Council, the CSIRO and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
Clas is committed to promoting the knowledge, skills and attitudes of marine mammal researchers and to making science more accessible.
Through the Clas Research Network, the organisation is building capacity to provide marine mammal science and marine mammal education.
The organisation is also working to increase the scientific research capacity of marine mammals to support the research and education needs of the Australian public.
The mission of Clas-Mariculture is to bring together members of marine sciences with the support of other scientists and with the knowledge and support of their partners to develop and disseminate scientific knowledge about marine life.
