Marine Preservation & Conservation

Save The Med Foundation

Written by JHS

Our mission

To enable the Balearic sea to recover its rich biodiversity and to thrive in harmony with a prospering, environmentally conscious and proactive local population.

Marine Protected Areas

Our team of experienced marine scientists and divers work closely with local authorities and stakeholders to create an effectively managed network of Marine Protected Areas around the Balearic Islands, allowing marine ecosystems to recover and thrive together with prospering local communities and industries.

Dos Manos

Our Dos Manos initiatives have been developed to tackle one of the biggest threats to our oceans and to ourselves: plastic pollution. Through our Dos Manos Beach Cleans, Schools Programme and Partners Programme we inspire and help local communities and companies to take action while raising awareness, sharing knowledge, and encouraging innovative solutions.

Scientific research

Our scientific research programmes are carried out by our devoted marine scientists, divers and volunteers, often in collaboration with other NGOs. Our four year long Mallorca Stingray Survey is portrayed in the short documentaries A Ray of Light and A Ray of Light II. In 2019 our highly valued collaboration with Alnitak has turned into a Partnership. More information coming soon!
