Summary

This project started out in the Seychelles and being so successful has moved across Africa. It is our priority to build long term sustainable research and awareness projects that help protect the wildlife within our oceans. Our team help train, develop and inspire local African communities to join our program as a researcher or outreach work that educate their fellow peers and other community members of the issues we face in the Ocean that is right on their doorstep.

Challenge

Climate change and human activities are the biggest threat to our oceans, wildlife is being effected by rising ocean temperatures, as well as plastic becoming an increasing concern and a serious threat to life in the ocean it is time to take action. But we need data and lots more! Many researchers come from developed countries and join many volunteer projects to help collect data but imagine if those people where locals? Not only does it create jobs but also educates the community

Solution

Our project works on multiple local initiatives to tackle the issues, working with local government and top conservation influencers we aim to fund the training and equipment for locals to train as researchers and monitors under the ocean. All our research is verified and influences policy through partnerships. Our team are also committed to building awareness and providing education on the critical condition and this is best done peer to peer and from community leaders that advocate the issue

Long-Term Impact

This project would enable local individuals to fully participate in Marine Conservation and find an employer, helping them with their monitoring program. It would create fully qualified SCUBA divers that know underwater survey methods and can start work with local bodies. With this awareness and opportunity it will also bring an awareness of pollution and issues that are generated from the local community and hopefully will start to help change habits
