Partnering to Restore and Protect the Ocean

One hundred percent of net proceeds from the auction of the waves will benefit these marine conservation projects:
Protecting and Restoring Mangroves in the Caribbean
Mangroves are resilient trees that root in the mud below shallow waters, providing shelter from predators for young reef fish species. Mangroves play a key role in mitigating climate change, sequestering up to 50 times more carbon than other ecosystems. They also dissipate the force of tropical storms and reduce damage to coastal communities. The sale of the waves in the Wave Walk will raise funds to protect and restore mangrove forests on the island of Grenada.
Sustainability in the
East China Sea
Many of the world’s fisheries are overexploited or depleted. This is not only an ecological disaster, but also a looming disaster for those who rely on fishing for their income and to populations who rely on fish as a source of food. The sale of the waves in the Wave Walk will raise funds to conduct urgently needed scientific research in the East China Sea so that a plan can be made to support the sustainability of these important waters.
Creation of a Chain of Marine Protected Areas in the Azores
The Azores are islands in the Atlantic that are home to diverse fauna. These spectacular waters have some of Earth’s tallest mountains – below the sea - as well as deep hydrothermal vents, and sea mounts. The Azores are an important migratory route for humpback whales, blue whales, devil rays, dolphins and other incredible sea creatures. The Azores are a marine biodiversity hot spot, a global treasure that is under threat from deep sea mining and overfishing. The sale of the waves in the Wave Walk will raise funds to create a chain of marine protected areas in the Azores.
