total motivation for our seas!

There still is much to save! But with „business as usual“ we are facing an earth-historical ecological disaster comparable to the great crisis about 65 million years ago when a massive meteorite hit the earth and changed everything. At that time a mass extinction of species was the result which also fell victim to the dinosaurs. A similar catastrophe is imminent if we do not start changing.

What will the world of our grandchildren and great-grandchildren look like? What degree of destruction will they find? Will the earth as we know it and take for granted still exist? Or will “the old earth” only be found in books, movies and in virtual reality?

It all lies in our own hands- Only together we can build the future. And so we invite you: think along, discuss with us, become part of the solution.

MareMundi has three major goals:

  1. Protection of ecologically valuable habitats
  2. aaccessible Education in ecological and sustainable issues to the general public
  3. Research (problem analysis and solutions)
