Large datasets have the potential to provide insights to solve problems such as the environmental challenges arising from the impact of human behaviour. In this context, marine researchers are developing a data culture to address the conservation of the oceans, including, for example, animal geolocalization, environmental satellite observations or human activities tracking. In this talk, I will introduce a global analysis of marine animal movement and the overlaps between marine megafauna trajectories and anthropogenic hazards, providing examples of the suggestions for conservation that our approaches may reveal.
