About

As partners of the Sustainable Development Goal N°14 of the United Nations, this last week of November, we've been notified that the Oceans diagnostic is far worst than we thought.

Ocean Action will be the n°1 priority for 2018, as an urgent situation that requires global collaboration. And we are taking action !

We aim to the Mexican Caribbean, part of the MesoAmerican Coral Reef, the 2nd largest in the world, where 13,000,000 tourists will be visiting from late December to March and leaving a human trace. 

We can change this : it's not that people don't want to, it´s just that they   don´t know about it.

Stage 1 of the project: Tourism, visibility & awareness about the situation.

From December 2017 to January 2018 

  • Production of 2 information booths, Cancun Air port & Cozumel's Cruise ships port of entry. 
  • Street art for the underwater ecosystem.
  • Print & distribute material with environmental information for hotels, restaurants and tourist operators that support the Coral Restoration Programs + cardboards with environmental content.  
  • The creation of an Ethical Tourism Certification.
  • Workshops with tourist operators.
  • Online awareness campaign.

Risks and challenges

We face a global ocean challenge, only with the rise of the water temperature many of the coral reef has already bleached. Ocean acidification, overfishing, oil leaks and many other treats are generating the so called Ocean Holocaust.

The Mexican caribbean is a trend destination. The lack of awareness of the general public on this matter allows the non ethical private sector to develop without environmental regulations. The last governmental administration went famous for corruption and no respect for the ecosystem.

We are the only program experienced and ready to educate the children in the area, sensibilise and empower the local community to demand environmental integrity to the public sector.
The tourists are also a key element in the program, they need to be able to easily identify the ethical private sector and reward it by choosing this option on top of the non ethical.
