The organization’s newest project, Turn the Tide on the Climate Crisis, aims to be a “global network of ocean sanctuaries to provide resilience to the devastating effects of the climate crisis.” Priority areas for 2020-2021 include Sri Lanka, Menorca Biosphere Reserve, East Antarctica, and Bering Strait, mapped out by the world’s leading marine scientists. Turn the Tide will be able to restore the ocean’s health and help us create a sustainable future for life on Earth. The project is currently on Kickstarter to seek funds for creating two major sanctuaries in Menorca and Sri Lanka. Project Zero is working with the Blue Marine Foundation to help create the ocean sanctuaries. For more information and if you have any interest in backing the project, you can check out their official Kickstarter page here.
The project aims for $25,138 to be pledged and will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Friday, August 14. Backers can adopt a coordinate of marine, with sizes varying depending on the amount pledged. Backers who pledge the maximum amount will be rewarded with a trip to Menorca to dive in the waters “surrounding the island with the scientific team from Blue Marine Foundation and Menorca Preservation Fund.”
