Switzerland for the Oceans, through its core focus on marine protected areas, has the aim to create synergy between ocean conservation stakeholders. All of the projects that we select are delivered by expert marine biologists and sector experienced organisations.

We support the efforts of Aldebaran  - the organisation that links science and media to proliferate and broadcast knowledge about the ocean. Read more.



Plastic pollution

Around nine million tonnes of plastic waste enter the oceans every year. Without action, by 2050, the ocean is expected to contain more plastics than fish by weight. We have supported OceanCare who act to stem the use of plastic. Read more.
