Their goal is to create long-lasting change in attitudes around marine conservation to help protect our oceans and ecosystems for future generations.
They believe the best way to instigate sustainable development in marine conservation is through community engagement and involvement. As such, their main focus is to educate locals on the importance of protecting our oceans, train them in sustainable practices, and create means of employment in the field of marine conservation. In this way, they support a range of sustainable solutions from beach clean-ups to turtle hatcheries to coral reef restoration.
