Children for the Oceans is pleased to announce its partnership with the Blue World Institute (the “BWI”). The BWI Marine research and Conservation works to protect the marine environment in the Adriatic Sea. To fulfil its mission, the BWI operates free programs – research, education and conservation. Their research focuses mainly on large marine vertebrates( (dolphins, whales, sea turtles, sharks, giant devil rays) while providing education activities and leading conservation projects. They work from the Adriatic islands of Losinj, Murter and Vis, with the local communities and collaborate nationally, regionally and internationally to advance sustainable marine management and environmental sustainability in the Mediterranean Basin.
The partnership will allow more dissemination of the scientific knowledge collected on marine mammals to the children and civil society from a more general standpoint. While BWI put at our disposal some photos, videos and scientific data, our ocean ambassadors will be able to use them in their awareness sessions as increasing the awareness on the status of our ocean requires an acurate and update scientific status.
Many thanks to BWI for their trust
