“I am very delighted to say that my experience of associating with The Living Ocean & Under The Wave has been very good and I feel it is a privilege too. My appreciation is highly for the excellent work they are conducting out in Marine social and economic issues in Zanzibar, by providing opportunities to the local community such as starting an Environmental Education Program for the local students, trying to discuss with the community about the importance of Marine Conservation which can empower them economically, spreading the word on the importance of the coral reefs and turtle conservation. This is important because Zanzibar is surrounded by the beautiful Indian Ocean. We should protect and treasure this for now and the future generations. The Living Ocean & Under The Wave is doing this by investing in a better future for Zanzibar. I am honored to have an advising roll for the organization and shall try to remain so. My good wishes to The Living Ocean & Under The Wave, “keep up the good work.“

The Ocean: the Blue heart of the planet

All life is dependent on marine ecosystems. It regulates our climate, produces half the oxygen we breathe, and fuels the water cycle that produces rain and freshwater. Countless people and companies depend on the natural resources coming from the oceans financially. According to the World Economic Forum, about 90% of goods globally are transported by the sea. Besides, the ocean is also an important source of food , providing not only seafood, but also nutrients such as sodium, calcium, and magnesium. In other words, it’s the Blue Heart of the planet!

The ocean is considered a key ecosystem for preserving life on planet Earth. It is vital to preserve the oceans and to take care of life outside the seas as well. To help the oceans it is essential everyone, individuals and companies, does their part. It is very important to avoid the disposal of waste in (ocean) waters. Especially plastic and chemical waste, which have a great impact on marine life. 

Helping an organization like The Living Ocean not only benefits the environment and our communities, but also adds value to your company. Today consumers and (potential) employees are looking for brands and initiatives that are committed to social responsibility and caring for the environment. Partnering with The Living Ocean increases the value of your brand and makes you more attractive to customers and (future) employees.
