Marine Animal Movement Portal

DATA

Online access to animal movement data and simulations

Create powerful environmental assessments by identifying the location of vulnerable marine species and modelling their response to human activities.

Marine Animal Movement Portal

An ecosystem-based management approach requires one to know the location of vulnerable species and how they respond to human activities such as oil spills and underwater noise from shipping, airguns and pile driving. However, this information is rarely available for free ranging animals such as seabirds and marine mammals—and movements are often left out of conventional risk assessments.
Through advanced dynamic habitat and agent-based modelling, the Marine Animal Movement Portal provides comprehensive descriptions of the presence and movement of vulnerable species. Now you can identify environmental issues early and throughout the project cycle to ease approval processes and reduce scheduling and investment risks.

Identify risks earlier and more accurately

Develop more focused early intervention and mitigation measures.

Expedite the license approval process

Provide proof that assessment has been done using the best available data including animal movements to safeguard the well-being of vulnerable species.

Reduce scheduling and investment risks

Plan for more targeted surveys based on best available modelling data.

Promote stakeholder accountability

More strongly convey environmental awareness to local communities, national authorities and non-profits.

Access the portal quickly and easily

Launch the Marine Animal Movement Portal directly from your internet browser, no hardware required.

Key application areas

Use the Marine Animal Movement Portal to:

  • Run on-screen simulations of Metocean parameters and animal movements for initial risk screening and project planning
  • Assess the effects of oil spill and noise based on real-time simulations to benefit the Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs)
  • Download and further analyse state-of-the-art ecological modelling data to support EIAs and emergency response planning
