OUR MARINE CONSERVATION
MASTERPLAN IN INDIA HAS LAUNCHED
'Paving the path to change through understanding, education and respect'
The ocean is our lifeblood. In the blink of an eye in earth terms we have almost destroyed it. Over fishing, pollution, anthropogenic warming, irresponsible industry and invasive species are all taking their toll, yet while there is ingenuity, there is hope and positivity has a remarkable knack for creating change...
Our work focuses on creating and implementing conservation strategies in regions where pollution, over-fishing, poor decision making and/or a lack of infrastructure are taking their toll on marine ecosystems. We work hands on with local communities to provide long-term opportunities which benefit the ocean, as well as the communities who rely upon it for survival.
MARINE CONSERVATION MASTERPLAN
Working alongside some of the poorest fishing communities, we aim to reverse the enormous impacts that overfishing, pollution and marine debris are having on local marine life and the people who rely on the ocean for survival. Our Masterplan in southern India will commence this February with the launch of our Marine Conservation Centre in Kovalam!
# edu. PROGRAMS = 59 in 4 countries
# projects run = 29 in 6 countries
# pieces marine debris collected = 264,122 (and counting...)
