Although our oceans are crucial to every day life, they can often be overlooked. Less than 3% of the world’s oceans are protected. Twenty-five percent of all fish in the oceans are provided shelter by reefs. From over-fishing to poaching to poor land use there are numerous reasons why the oceans and marine life are in danger. The size of these unhealthy areas is constantly growing as an enormous crisis.
Ocean Crest Alliance is working to protect and repair the health of our oceans by research, conservation and education. Most research is provided by Rapid Ecological Assessments that allow scientists to conclude on restoration strategies. Ocean Crest Alliance also elevates the awareness and truth of illegal fishing in the Bahamas and around the world. Their educational messages cover exactly why we need to preserve and save the world’s oceans.
