MigraMar is a network of scientists who belong to:

Government agencies
Non-profit organizations

In different parts of the American Continent

Researchers work on investigation and conservation of migratory marine species in the region of the Eastern Pacific.


To research and provide the necessary technical advice for the conservation of the migratory marine species in the Eastern Pacific.

Long-Term View

To provide the migratory marine species of the Eastern Pacific with a threat-free environment to guarantee the health of their populations over time.


Implement effective plans for management and conservation that are in keeping with the nature of these creatures.

The work of its members was focussed on the region of the Eastern Tropical Pacific Region, but owing to the migratory nature of the species researched Migramar evolved extending its limits and signing agreements and arrangements with researchers from countries such as Mexico, Peru and the United States.


We are deeply committed to building capacity among our own members, with regional partners, and with future generations of scientists to continue to produce high-quality science for the conservation of migratory species throughout the Eastern Pacific.


We incorporate the best available science to provide credible information to decision makers at national and international levels.


Our word is our bond. To fulfill our commitments to colleagues and the animals we strive to protect, our high professional standards require members to honor intellectual property rights, meet international animal care protocols, and secure all required permits.


We share our scientific and financial procedures in a timely fashion to advance our mission.


The intellectual property and creative ideas shared by our members is at the heart of our network.

We advance our mission by being accountable to each other through collaborative ventures, reciprocity, acknowledgements, attributions, and shared authorship.
