Marine area FAQ

Why is protecting marine area important?

Marine ecosystems encompass oceans, seas, and diverse habitats, covering 70% of the Earth’s surface, providing crucial benefits to humanity. Apart from being a vital food source and supporting economies, these ecosystems play a pivotal role in human well-being. They offer coastal protection, maintain marine biodiversity, and contribute to carbon sequestration. Mangroves and coral reefs, for instance, protect against extreme weather events such as storms and floods and absorb one-third of the carbon dioxide from human activities.

Protecting marine areas is essential to counteract overfishing, a threat affecting over 55% of the world’s coral reefs. Overharvesting disrupts the delicate balance, leading to issues like the growth of macroalgae, which can smother reefs and hinder their ability to adapt to other threats, such as poor water quality or warming ocean temperatures.

Our partners work to ensure that Marine Protected Areas (MPA) have their legal protection status enforced by supporting the necessary infrastructure to prevent illegal and destructive activities. They work with local communities to patrol the marine areas, check for illegal sewage dumping, which helps keep the water clean, establish sustainable fishing practices and management programs when necessary, and organize boat patrols to ensure the perimeter of the MPAs are not violated.

Our marine protection efforts extend across various countries, including Brazil, Indonesia, the Philippines, Honduras, Belize, Mexico, and more. These initiatives aim to address specific challenges faced by each region’s marine ecosystems.

To ensure a tangible impact, our partners engage in regular monitoring, implement adaptive management strategies, and foster collaborative partnerships. Regular assessments ensure the effectiveness of measures in place to achieve maximum positive outcomes. Through collaborative initiatives with local communities, governmental bodies, and organizations, our partners cultivate a holistic approach to marine conservation, ensuring a sustained and meaningful impact.
