What are marine conservation projects?

Our marine environment is being placed under huge pressure!

Conservation projects target vulnerable marine species and habitats, increasing our awareness that many human activities, such as overfishing, habitat destruction, pollution, whaling and other issues impact our fragile marine life and ecosystems. 

How can we be more aware of marine conservation issues?

The depleted and degraded state of the world’s oceans and the consequent social, health, and economic impacts have prompted numerous international efforts to consider options for returning oceans to a healthy state. Numerous international bodies are promoting the development of strategies and marine conservation programmes to achieve the sustainability of our marine environments. 

Friend of the Sea, in line with its mission to conserve the marine environment, has supported different marine conservation projects over the years. It has also developed, in collaboration with international scientific experts and organisations, projects and campaigns to protect endangered species.
