'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 - PHASE II

Global Programs India

Working alongside some of the poorest fishing communities, our full-time team in India aims 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 Marine Education Centre launched earlier this year and our programs are now in full swing!

Check out the report-back from our most recent Global Ambassador Adventure to India.


OUR IMPACT

# edu. PROGRAMS = 162 in 6 countries

# Campaigns run = 18 in 6 countries

# Individual pieces of marine debris Collated = 512,422 (and counting...)

Note: unlike many organisations, we do not extrapolate any of our data. Our data reflects every individual piece of debris that our team has collected.
