Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>

As I write this text, the first snowflakes are falling. A year ago, who would have thought that so many things would be so different? Still, with your help, we could achieve some important milestones in marine conservation.

The region between the Balearic Islands and the Spanish mainland was declared a protected area. It is home to many whales, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks and seabirds. And all efforts by the oil industry to explore new oil and gas sites in the region have been rejected since 2015.
We are also moving forward with our plan to reduce single use plastics in Switzerland. At an international level, after many engagements within the UNEP Expert Group on Marine Litter and Microplastics, more than half of all UN Member States have now expressed their support for a new legally binding global treaty.

The new setting of virtual conferences, consultations and expert groups has provided new opportunities but also posed challenges. I recommend the blog by our Policy Team on Virtual Diplomacy.

 
Help us to protect the ocean
The past months have been challenging for all of us. But they have also shown us the value of friendship and support. And I would like to take the occasion and thank you for your unwavering support you have given us in these special times.
And now I wish you and your loved ones peaceful moments and a good start into the new year.

         

Sigrid Lüber, founder and president OceanCare
