Our Organisation is Dedicated To World Class Fisheries Enforcement, Anti-Poaching, Research and Rescue and Rehabilitation

Defending Marine Wildlife Is Our Mission

mock

The International Marine Mammal Conservation Society (IMMCS) was founded in 2015 and is based out of the United States.

We have a structured military-like organizational approach to marine and land conservation, employing tactics, technology, equipment, programs, research & development, personnel and training requirements and procedures generally reserved for a military force.

The International Marine Mammal Conservation Society is the world's largest marine conservation, fisheries enforcement, rescue and rehabilitation and anti poaching agency, aiming to protect marine animals and ecosystems through a variety of methods including but not limited to; ocean cleanup, research, rescue and rehabilitation, education and direct action. We take on an enforcement role by physically obstructing, harassing and shutting down illegal whaling and fishing activities on the high seas. In 2019 we are including land based anti poaching as a mission requirement.
