On his arrival in Ottawa, the capital of Canada, on Monday 7 May, H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco met, for the first time, the Canadian Prime Minister, Mr. Justin Trudeau, at Canada’s Parliament Buildings. During this meeting, the two Heads of State, who share the same interests for environmental issues, discussed commitments undertaken within the framework of the Paris Agreement and threats related to climate change, in particular to the Arctic and Antarctica, as well as ocean preservation: common concerns that have brought the two countries closer together for some time. The Poles, principal witnesses of global warming, are among the first continents affected.

Seacology has launched its first ever crowdfunding campaign to save parrotfish in Colombia

Launched on Earth Day, last April 22nd, 2018 the campaign aims to help raise awareness of the importance of parrotfish to the health of the coral reefs around Isla Providencia, Colombia. Hungry parrotfish eat the harmful macroalgae that compete for space with corals, keeping the ecosystem in balance. Too much algae can smother and ultimately kill a coral reef. Currently, the parrotfish around Providencia are being overfished, which poses great danger to the coral reefs: without the parrotfish, the reef will quickly become overgrown with algae and rapidly deteriorate.

Seacology’s project is a total ban on catching parrotfish in the waters around the Island. But a ban is impossible without community support—so Seacology is funding a campaign that will reach everyone on the island. It includes a video for fishermen, radio broadcasts, education for schoolchildren, and plaques for restaurants that take parrotfish off the menu. Seacology, supported by The Prince Albert 2 of Monaco Foundation, will be working with the Providencia fishing community, the regional government agency Coralina, and local NGO Fundación Providence.
