Protecting Our Oceans
Coral reefs are believed to have the highest biodiversity of any ecosystem on the planet, even more than tropical rainforests. Occupying less than one percent of the ocean floor, coral reefs are home to more than twenty-five percent of marine life.
We work closely with a UK Charity / UN recognised NGO called Reef World on various projects that they spearhead around the world to help protect coral and marine environments. Below are some of the projects we have supported.
Sea Adventure School
The SAS was a project, led by Reef World, to build a series of floating schools in the Philippines. The intention was educate local children and build an appreciation for the marine environment which we hope that they will carry to adulthood as scientists, local governors and ecologists. The outcomes of this project are not realised for many years but the impact could be significant!
Green Fins Initiative
Green Fins is also a Reef World project which is now also an accredited part of the prestigious United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Their purpose is to reduce the significant environmental impact that tourism has on the marine environment, specifically scuba diving and snorkeling.
Albeit a small team based out of Bristol, their impact is huge and they continue to enact positive and lasting changes to the marine environment and the communities in which they work!
