MareCet at 10: Saving Marine Life With Passion and ‘Porpoise’

Marine conservation NGO MareCet celebrated their 10th anniversary just last month, and we celebrate along with them by catching up with the organisation's Chairperson, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Dr Louisa Ponnampalam. A marine biologist by training, Dr Louisa joins us to discuss some of the group's achievements to date, and also their plans moving forward, including their latest initiative, a large-scale outreach programme called the Whales On-The-Wheels (WoW) Mobile Marine Education Nationwide Tour, which will see the group travelling through Malaysia to "bring the ocean" to you.
