Why did SEVENSEAS Media become a Global Ocean Refuge System partner?

“The mission of SEVENSEAS Media is to connect individuals and resources inside and outside of the conservation community to further the shared goal of preventing habitat destruction and biodiversity loss. Our access to scientists, researchers, donors, and the next generation of ocean protectors compels us to spread the messaging behind the invaluable work of the Global Ocean Refuge System. Safeguarding healthy oceans and marine biodiversity through marine protected areas is the right thing to do, and it is fundamental for human prosperity. It is an honor to partner with GLORES, and we look forward to bringing more of its stories to life in the future.”

 

 

We were thrilled to announce the Global Ocean Refuge Award winners at Our Ocean 2018. Today, ten blue parks around the world have earned our Global Ocean Refuge status for outstanding ocean protection.
