Many species of marine mammals are threatened and their populations 
decline worldwide due to the increase of anthropogenic activities such 
as fishing, shipping, pollution and climate change. Our understanding of 
marine mammal behavior/ecology remains poor and under-documented since 
studies of the species are extremely challenging in practice and theory. 
Applied anthropology can help provide effective strategies based on 
cultural compatibility. Marine biology has already validated that 
biodiversity is beneficial to the ecosystem and so should anthropology 
promote the significance of mutualism in society.
