The Ocean is probably the biggest business in the world. It provides half the oxygen we breathe, it has absorbed a quarter of our CO2 emissions, it supports the livelihoods of more than 3 billion people and puts food on our plates, but it is under threat. Ocean Unite brings together a diverse group of conservationists, business leaders, philanthropies, and influential individuals who share a common concern: that the Ocean and marine life – once thought to be infinite – now face a questionable future. Their collective mission is to Unify, Amplify and Engage key voices at the moments that matter the most for the Ocean.
The Getch Foundation has teamed up with Sir Richard Branson and Ocean Unite to be one of the first major backers of the 30x30 initiative for ocean conservation in the Caribbean with an ongoing annual commitment of $1million.
