The WWF Mediterranean Marine Initiative is a concerted, coordinated effort bringing together all the WWF offices in the region. Our vision is to mobilize society, engage stakeholders, help create the necessary conditions that will enable the much needed transformative changes in marine conservation.

The Mediterranean is a priority ecoregion in urgent need of conservation. It is home to rare and important marine habitats, extensive endemism and a number of endangered charismatic species.
