La Svizzera per gli oceani

The oceans sustain all life. We depend on them for our survival.

We want to bring the blue economy, conservationists, and
people who care, together to promote Ocean Vitality.


Why it matters

Acidification, warming, 
habitat destruction, coastal pollution and overfishing are destroying the oceans.

How we work

We bring together people - like conservationists and the blue economy - who want to address the challenges. 

What we do

 We are 100% volunteers.

We give funds, organise forum and challenge events, and set
wheels in motion.

Projects we support today

Aeolian Islands

"In September we are starting a real push to make Salina (in the Aeolian Islands) plastic bag free. We getting the press behind this and making a real statement -  setting an example throughout the whole Mediterranean."



Monk Seals

"The protection of the monk seal is not only an environmental issue, but a social and economic issue as well. The monk seal is a symbol of the Mediterranean."



"The research and media vessel Aldebaran travels the oceans as the independent voice of the sea. On board, scientists and journalists are, literally, 'in the same boat'."


Our Story


Seems like no time since we first got round the table.
Look what's happened.

Our Volunteers

The funds received through the support of Switzerland for the Oceans has... reinforced the protection of the critically endangered Mediterranean Monk seal around the island of Gyaros, Greece. It has strengthened the work of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, for the conservation of this safe haven, sheltering the densest population of
Monk seals in the world.
