Global Projects

We only develop global projects that solve the challenges of a deteriorating ocean on a planetary scale.

Our global projects focus exclusively on all threatened and endangered plant and animal species that form and support habitats and are therefore essential to the functioning of the ocean. Reducing the major threats to these critical species is equally important. Climate change, coastal development and terrestrial runoff are among these threats.

Global Coral Restoration

The need

Coral reefs are the first ecosystem threatened by functional extinction. An ocean without functioning coral reefs is unthinkable and therefore unacceptable, as one in four species in the ocean depends on healthy reefs, as does the direct livelihood of more than 500 million people worldwide.

The vision

An ocean where corals recover globally, rather than dying.
Project status: In progress
From passive protection to active intervention

Blue Forest Rebuild

The need

Blue forests are among the most biodiverse marine ecosystems and the most powerful carbon sinks in the biosphere, making them essential to effectively mitigate climate change. But we have already lost an estimated 30 to 50 percent of their global extent. Blue forests are mangrove forests, seagrass meadows and salt marshes.

The vision

An ocean rich in marine forests.
Project status: In progress

Majestic Megafauna Recovery

The need

Marine megafauna have a critical role in the maintenance of ocean functioning. Because most are top predators, they keep the marine ecosystem in balance, and because they make long migrations, they connect ecosystems, which is essential for an intact ocean. Populations have declined worldwide. Some have even shrunk to a minimum.

The vision

An ocean full of large sea creatures.
Project status: In progress

Epic Oyster Revival

The need

Native oyster reefs have been largely destroyed, declining to about 15% worldwide. In Europe it is the most threatened marine habitat, being almost extinct. But native oyster reefs are critical to the functioning of the ocean. They filter and clean water, provide habitat and food, protect shorelines, and create jobs.

The vision

An ocean in which native oysters return to our shores.
Project status: Upcoming

Grand Fish Restock

The need

Fish are crucial for the dynamics of food chains, but also for nutrient cycling and the resilience of marine ecosystems. It is also currently the most important source of animal protein in the human diet. However, global fish production has quadrupled in the last 50 years and around a third of stocks are overfished.

The vision

A vibrant ocean teeming with fish.
Project status: Upcoming

Large Deep Ocean Rescale

The need

The deep ocean is the largest ecosystem on Earth and, as the central climate system, can also be considered the world’s largest carbon sink. It is the support and power source of life. Because it is largely unexplored, globally threatened deep-sea habitats such as deep-sea corals remain unmapped and still unknown.

The vision

A healthy deep ocean that we know and care for from the top to the bottom.
