This Giving Tuesday, join the wave and act for our ocean

Donate as little as 1€ & contribute directly to the conservation of coral ecosystems in the Mediterranean Sea, by supporting our S.O.S. Corales project.

It was Black Friday this weekend, and as you all know this day has a real social and environmental impact on our planet… We often end up getting things we don’t actually need. So this year, why not give back to the ocean instead?

 

 

Join the wave and bring new meaning to Black Friday and Giving Tuesday. From 1€, donate and contribute directly to preserve and restore the unique marine biodiversity present in the Mediterranean Sea!

Why restore cold-water corals?

Biodiversity

Cold-water coral ecosystems can support up to 29 times more fauna than areas with no corals. They provide a habitat and refuge for deep-sea inhabitants.

At the same time, they provide food and breeding grounds for visiting species, and therefore have a more general impact on the marine environment.

Tourism

Cold-water corals are often an essential element for tourism in the regions where they are found. They attract snorkelers, divers and free divers, and beachgoers. They also support the livelihoods of local communities in this way.

Cold water corals support jobs and livelihoods of coastal communities all around the world, including through fishing and tourism.

Science

Research on cold water corals has developed very recently. We are just beginning to understand these ecosystems, their structure and their functioning. All their secrets have yet to be discovered!
