The AMLC is a confederation of 38 marine research, education, and resource management institutions endeavoring to encourage the production and exchange of research and resource management information, advance the cause of marine and environmental education in the region, and facilitate cooperation and mutual assistance among its membership.

We also have more than 370 Individual Members with professional research and management interests in the Region. While the AMLC is at its core an association of institutions, these individual members avail themselves of networking and professional interaction opportunities afforded by AMLC activities. Active communication among members is enabled by our AMLC Listserv and AMLC FaceBook page, instantly connecting members and providing networking and information resources for pursuing our professional and research interests.

AMLC is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit corporation governed by an Executive Board consisting of one Institutional Representative from each Institutional Member plus a slate of officers elected by the Executive Board. A list of current officers with contact information may be found in the About Us section of this site, and a membership directory is available under Directories.

Consider donating to the AMLC to support our activities, including bi-lingual translation services during our Scientific Meetings, student-travel support for Scientific Meetings, and our student Grants-in-Aid program.

Scientific Meetings are held every other year (see Meetings), for which peer-reviewed Proceedings are published as Supplemental Editions of the International Journal for Tropical Biology (Revista de Biología Tropical). It is our intention to provide these Proceedings volumes on-line in the Proceedings Archive section as we develop this site. Financial assistance is provided to help students to attend these Scientific Meetings whenever funds are available, and cash/certificate awards are presented for the best verbal- and poster-presentations by students (see Student Awards).
