Kovalam & Vizhinjam, India

After extensive research and planning we chose Kovalam & Vizhinjam in southern Kerala as the location for our inaugural Global Program for a number of reasons. Two of the driving factors in this decision were the enormous pollution and management issues facing the ocean in the region, as well as the fantastic community work of Sebastian Indian Social Projects, who we believed would make the perfect Global Partner

Our first Global Ambassador Adventure took place in February / March 2017. Our 6 Ambassadors and 2 PCFML staff brought with them extensive experience in a wide variety of fields, which contributed to the development of our Marine Conservation Masterplan, which will be implemented from April 5, 2018 by our 3 local and international coordinators. Our Marine Conservation Centre is also due to open in early April. The centre will be a hub for the local community to share ideas, learn more about the ocean and how to conserve it, whilst developing new skills to move toward a more sustainable future where conservation is worth more than exploitation.
