OCEANS WITHOUT
BORDERS

&Beyond’s Oceans Without Borders initiative, in partnership with Africa Foundation, expands their longstanding dedication to land and wildlife conservation to include the much needed protection and preservation of our oceans.

Plastic Free

A PLASTIC
PLANET

A Plastic Planet is a goal campaign organisation . It was founded to ignite and inspire the world to turn off the plastic tap. We want to dramatically REDUCE the use of indestructible plastic that is destroying our oceans, our soils, our air and the health of future generations.

WORLDRISE

Worldrise is a non-profit organisation founded by young professionals able to create projects that unite environmental protection, creativity, and education.

WORLDRISE 🌊 

In collaboration with Fastweb, @worldrise_onlus have launched an education, awareness and scientific research project named SEATY.

The goal is to protect stretches of coast through the establishment of local marine conservation areas. 

The pilot project, part of Worldrise’s 30x30 Campaign to protect at least 30% of the Italian seas by 2030, is taking place in Golfo Aranci (SS), Sardinia, through activities both inside and outside the water, with a nature-positive approach capable of having a positive impact on the environment, allowing the resilience and regeneration of marine ecosystems.

TRIANGLE OF CORALS 🪸 

A wonderful treasure of 6 million km2 is hidden between the waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean…the Triangle of Corals!

🐡 Hosting 76% of the world's marine species, it is considered one of the most important marine biodiversity hotspots globally. Its waters bathe the coasts of six different nations: the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and the Solomon Islands.

✨ A real treasure chest, to be preserved and protected, for their biological, economic and social importance.
However, its origin is uncertain: the large number of species, the shallow depth and its position make scientists argue, projecting them towards 3 different theories.

REEF SAFE SPF🧴 

One common chemical in sunscreen can have devastating effects on coral reefs. Now, scientists know why.

Sea anemones, which are closely related to corals, and mushroom coral can turn oxybenzone — a chemical that protects people against ultraviolet light — into a deadly toxin that’s activated by light. The good news is that algae living alongside the creatures can soak up the toxin and blunt its damage.

But that also means that bleached coral reefs lacking algae may be more vulnerable to death. Heat-stressed corals and anemones can eject helpful algae that provide oxygen and remove waste products, which turns reefs white. Such bleaching is becoming more common as a result of climate change.

As we are now embracing the summer it's time to invest in reef-safe sunscreens! #oceanfamilyfoundation

GREAT MIGRATION 🦈 

New research reveals great white 🦈 are having to adapt due to major changes caused by humans, as anthropogenic emissions push up temperatures and warm oceans.

A new study into “unprecedented” sightings of juvenile great white sharks at the northern end of Monterey Bay, south of San Francisco on the Pacific coast indicates a significant northward expansion in the young sharks’ range - about 600km (370 miles) northwards since 2014.

This range shift indicates the young sharks are being subjected to a loss of suitable thermal habitat as water temperatures within their preferred temperature range are becoming harder to find. #oceanfamilyfoundation 

These sharks - by venturing into territory where they have not historically been found - are telling us how the ocean is being affected by climate change.

Though the northwards expansion of the great whites may not have come as a complete surprise, the relatively rapid shift in the sharks’ habits means that now is the time to address our emissions. 

We need to act on climate change and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. #oceanfamilyfoundation
