All our expeditions are associated with conservation programs and are geared to improve our knowledge of marine ecosystems.
Project LIFE+ Migrate aims to identify potential sites of community interest (SCIs) for bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) and loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta). An assessment of the conservation status of these species and their foraging, migration and reproduction habitats in waters around Malta will be conducted. The assessment will include a study of abundance, distribution and habitat use and the influence of environmental and anthropic parameters on these factors.
The Oasis Program for the Conservation of Marine Biodiversity of Western Mediterranean aims to increase the survivorability of nesting loggerhead turtles where they are known to be most vulnerable, and in their encounters with fishing vessels, and specifically the long-lining fishermen.
Between 2013 and 2016 KAI Marine Services will be assisting the Government of Djibouti in a Marine Protected Area Programme of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). KAI will be in charge of developping the management plans for 4 amazing MPAs and establishing a stakeholder communication strategy. The aim of the programme is to ensure that the mangrove forests, pristine coral reefs and Sandy beaches of Djibouti are adequately preserved and managed so that nomadic tribes can increase their resilience with regards mainly to the threat of climate change.
