Our programs build awareness and evidence of the interconnectedness between biodiversity, ecosystems and ecosystem services, and the value nature provides to sustaining our livelihoods.
From biodiversity and food supply to the livelihoods of millions, so much depends on our oceans. Coral reefs are home to one quarter of all life in the oceans, and they provide humans with immense benefits such as coastal protection, fisheries, and tourism.
