it is build from a dream of having an ocean free of ghost nets. It is build from a dream where every turtle or shark or whale can swim freely without being tangled, injured, captivated under water. A dream where marine life rescue is substituted with conservation programs.
This dream is our dream. It is a community dream supported and sustained by each and every one of you reading. It is a commitment. It is your commitment to the earth and the oceans, to keep them clean, safe and smiling.

AMBASSADOR FOR ATOLL MARINE CENTRE IN THE MALDIVES
After volunteering in December 2017 with the Atoll Marine Centre in the Maldives I decided to take the next step and stay as Ambassador to promote and create awareness for the causes they work for.
The Atoll Marine Centre is a conservation base situated on the local island Naifaru in Lhaviyani atoll. Run by Naifaru Juvenile and supported and manned by Atoll Volunteers, focuses on programs like turtle rehabilitation, coral gardening, clown fish breeding and of course community engagement. For more details regarding the volunteering programs read 2 weeks, 1 island, 50+ Turtles – Volunteering in the Maldives. Do let me know when/if you want to go volunteering in the Maldives to get you in direct contact with the local team. The turtles are already looking forward to meet you! 🙂
