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.
