OceanNEnvironment only undertake projects that yield measurable goals and objectives. Our positional statements are:

  •  The single MOST important reason why our oceans are disintegration is because  there too many people on this planet. We believe that conservation efforts should be directed to benefit the local stake holders providing them with resources to benefit from the eco - tourism.

  • If long-term conservation is to take place - it is dependent on our capacity to persuade local people that they will be ‘better off’ protecting the natural system than degrading it, by creation of markets for goods and services in an environmentally manner.
  • If local people gain from sustainable use of the ocean resources through tourism, they will protect this asset and may even invest future resources into it. Marine parks and reserves cannot survive without the support of the local people.
  • We believe that understanding, appreciation and love begets preservation and protection people can only protect and preserve what they love therefore it is important that they have affinity and connection to the environment. In this aspect OceanNEnvironment actively support research, initiate educational projects with financial grants and logistic support.

OceanNEnvironment’s conservation projects are small, but they are performance based, providing direct assistance or contribution to the cause thus results are measurable.

Shark Conservation projects - The apex predator of the ocean's ecological web now faces a new predator - the human being.

It will cause an imbalance in the ecology and bio-diversity of their habitat, our oceans, and our seas. Read More
