Protecting marine areas is a key effort in ocean conservation. The areas we protect are designated Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) due to their ecological importance to maintaining marine ecosystems.
We enable protection for areas that are crucial in maintaining aquatic ecosystems healthy, like reproductive and nursery grounds for important marine species, as well as biodiversity hotspots that sustain ecosystem function.
We partner with trusted and certified organizations like Coral Reef Alliance and The Coast Patrol.
Our partners work to ensure that Marine Protected Areas (MPA) have their legal protection status enforced by supporting the necessary infrastructure to prevent illegal and destructive activities. They work with local communities to patrol the marine areas, checking for illegal sewage dumping which helps keeping the water clean, establish sustainable fishing practices and management programs when necessary, and organizing boat patrols to ensure the perimeter of the MPAs are not violated.
