World Water Day highlights importance of clean water

By Mexico team | Project Leader

Thankyou for your continued support for our conservation project. 

World Water Day often serves as a platform to raise awareness about the importance of clean water, not only for human consumption but also for the health of our oceans and coastal environments.

On World Water Day, March 22nd, our team visited the beach to highlight the connection between water pollution and marine ecosystems.

Our beach cleaning initiatives not only help to remove litter and debris from coastal areas but also educate the public about the importance of reducing plastic waste and preventing pollution. Your support allows us to provide resources for these initiatives.

Last year our team conducted 33 site clean-ups and collected over 44 kgs of plastic waste.  This year we have already collected over 120 kgs of plastic waste.

 By participating in weekly beach cleaning activities throughout the year, we aim to highlight the importance of protecting and preserving our oceans and water resources.

Our work has also included assisting in out-planting several Orbicella and Diploria corals on the reef with our Federal partners.

These corals are important reef-building species and contribute to coral reef ecosystems' structural integrity and biodiversity. Unfortunately, they are also susceptible to various threats, including coral bleaching, ocean acidification, pollution, and disease outbreaks such as Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease (SCTLD).

However, these coral fragments were out-planted on our reef as they have shown resilience, specifically in recovering from last summer's bleaching event. We are optimistic these little ones will survive and thrive after this summer's prediction of a more severe bleaching event.

Your valued donations allow us to continue working with our partners on these restoration projects. Your support through donations is greatly appreciated.

You can also help us help our oceans by limiting our use of single use plastics, harsh chemicals in cleaning supplies and of course recycle, REUSE and REDUCE!

Thank you for your support!
