Over the past two decades our charity has been supporting conservation efforts around the world through our grants programme.
We have supported a wide range of projects, including everything from art installations to snorkel trails. Each year, we select relevant conservation themes for the grants, but since day one, projects have always been required to align with our ethos of connecting people with the Ocean.
We are currently supporting three projects, each working on the healthy future of vitally important seagrass habitats.
Zoo Outreach Organisation, India – Empowering Students and Women to lead in seagrass conservation through awareness and education
This project is grounded in a powerful theory of change: by educating the local youth and spreading awareness to the women of self-help groups in the community, they will become ambassadors of knowledge. Through this ripple effect, a collective understanding of the importance of preserving marine ecosystems will be fostered.
Germark Holdings, Tanzania – Linking tourists with seagrass meadow restoration initiatives along coastal Tanzania through app
Bringing together multiple stakeholders, tourists and conservation organisations to work together towards the restoration of vitally important seagrass meadows. Different audiences will be able to engage with restoration activities through site visits, community engagement activities, training of community champions and the development of digital tools.
Environ Liberia, Liberia – Coastal restoration and livelihood enhancement
We will continue to support ground-breaking and important projects like these around the world, but your support is essential for this to happen. Donate to our charity today to keep these global community projects going.
