Supporting marine and littoral ecosystems

Coastlines play a key role in dampening the effect of climate change-induced phenomena and therefore require to be safeguarded.

Unfortunately, coral reefs, seagrass beds and species such as turtles today are under threat worldwide. The degree to which those are impacted across the globe is disturbing. The effect of current climate change, directly impacting coral reefs, seabeds, and turtles is vectored by the noticeable increase in seawater temperature.
The regeneration of degraded coral reefs and coastlines may be assisted by a well-designed recovery plan. However, it can only be effective if local causes of coastline degradations are tackled. Marine ecosystems preservation is crucial in dampening the effects of climate change. As such, it is imperative to support it by making sure that local populations are aware of the importance of littoral and marine zones in preserving their living standards and shielding them from waves, storms, and floods.
As such, this fundraiser aims to support the protection of these ecosystems by working in cooperation with associations and diving clubs, through various actions, including the collection of plastics on the beaches. Another point which we could support is informing inhabitants of the crucial role of coastal ecosystems, how they can act locally, and inform them how they can contribute to their preservation are the keys to making restoration a real success. The fund will also strengthen exemplary initiatives identified.
