Humans are failing the world’s oceans and, in the process, we’re making life harder for the creatures that live in them and the people who depend on them. Without urgent action, we risk losing one of our most precious resources – the coral reefs that protect and support communities of marine life and humans.
We believe that Marine Protected Areas are the best way to give oceans a break, without excluding people from the equation. Well-managed MPAs provide opportunities for responsible travel and sustainable harvesting as part of the blue economy. When you make mindful choices about your travel destinations, you can have a lasting, positive impact.
