Edge Environment’s monthly ‘Make More Good’ donation sends $300 to a worthy cause nominated by a staff member. In October, 2019, Edge’s Managing Director, Jonas Bengtsson, chose the Marine Conservation Institute to be the recipient.
“The ocean is the Earth’s biggest life support system — the oxygen for every second breath we take comes from it. Healthy marine ecosystems are essential for human survival, wealth and well-being”1. Marine wildlife is severely threatened by pollution and climate change. On a very local level, we enjoy the amazing gifts and benefits from the ocean every day in so many ways, but we also see, experience and hear about how the marine environment is under threat.
“As a leader in the global movement to protect vast ocean areas, Marine Conservation Institute uses the latest science to identify important marine ecosystems and advocate for their protection”1. The Marine Conservation Institute’s main project, The Global Ocean Refuge System, is a science-based, collaborative and international effort designed to catalyze strong protection for at least 30% of the world’s oceans by 2030.
On behalf of EDGE I donate $300 to the Marine Conservation Institute to support their critical, science-based fight for the protection of our waters and coast.
