The sea plays a fundamental role in regulating the climate of our planet; it produces over 50% of the oxygen, with a function comparable to that of tropical forests, and absorbs about a third of the excess of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere by anthropogenic activities.

In recent years, however, fish stocks are missing, land and marine habitats are increasingly polluted (due to human activities), biodiversity is at risk and the oceans are becoming dangerously hot and acidic. The incautious and illegal fishingthat is disrupting the entire trophic network and the ever-increasing pollution are seriously endangering the vital functions of seas and oceans.

Our future depends on
the health of our Sea

It is fundamental to act and act now

That is why Marevivo is constantly engaged in awareness-raising actions of governments to obtain effective and concrete laws aimed at the conservation and defense of the marine ecosystem and its species. In particular, among the last battles won to fight the threat of the marine litter: the law for the ban of microplastics in cosmetics and that to safeguard from non-biodegradable cotton buds

of biodiversity, the prohibition of fishing sea cucumbers, a specie seriously threatened due to overfishing. In approval phase the Salvamare law in order to allow fishermen to throw away in dock the waste fished in the sea. Marevivo works actively forthe establishment of Marine Protected Areas that represent a factor of pivotal importance for the protection of the Sea.

Remain alert and raise awareness.
