The Foundation has become a signatory of the ‘RISE UP – A Blue Call to Action’ initiative
This difficult period marked by the COVID19 pandemic shows us the extent to which our lives depend on biodiversity. The oceans, which cover over 70% of our blue planet, regulate both the climate and the water cycle that sustain life on Earth.

The Foundation is joining Oak Foundation, the Oceano Azul Foundation and Ocean Unite, among other organizations and foundations across the world, in the RISE UP – A Blue Call to Action initiative. This petition calls on political leaders to take bold action to safeguard the oceans by means of clear goals and a specific timeline for action.
