Species and Ecosystems

The vast majority of species or ecosystem focused work in the marine conservation sector has concentrated on coral reefs, and charismatic animals such as whales, dolphins, sharks and turtles. While these species and ecosystems are still in need of conservation action, the wide array of diverse flora and fauna in the ocean calls for a diversification of this support.

The Species and Ecosystems strand of our Ocean Programme aims to plug gaps in conservation funding and support for neglected marine species and habitats, working with partners that focus on particular marine species or ecosystems that have slipped under the radar.
