Seasearch's Annual Report, sponsored by Global Ocean for 2011, has the most up-to-date details of important species and habitat records from surveys within proposed MCZs. This work is particularly useful to the Marine Conservation Society and the report highlights new species records and the use of Seasearch data to propose new Marine Protected Areas. Seasearch allows volunteer divers to contribute to marine research across the coastal zones of Britain and Ireland.
We provided funds to support the film team with a focused media tour in order to obtain distribution deals for Minds in the Water. This will fund marketing material, travel in the US, Australia and Europe with the film as well as the preparation of the film for DVD release.
Global Ocean continues to support Fundacion Omacha. The aim is to combine efforts between countries (Colombia, Peru and Bolivia) to develop good dolphin watching practices, strengthen the implementation of the South American Action Plan and provide valuable tools for the conservation of these species.
