Blue Mission

The Perfect World Foundation's Blue Mission is to raise awareness about our oceans and the importance of keeping the oceans alive. More than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in the oceans every year. If this continues there will be more plastic than fish in the sea's if we don't take action now. Do we really need to use "one time" items, or can we re-use them? Because mostly of the plastics that are thrown away are single use products.

"We need to respect the oceans and take care of them as if our lives depended on it. Because they do" - a world famous quote by TPWF's ambassador, Dr Sylvia Earle, where the words speaks for themselves. If we don't start to care about our "blue planet" we will for sure start to see devastating effects. 

TPWF are working with experts all over the world and with projects protecting everything from manta rays to develop submarines to research on the deepest parts of the ocean.

2017 was was the year when TPWF started focusing on the Blue Mission with the grande finale being the Save the Ocean award ceremony where Dr. Sylvia Earle was awarded with TPWF's award, the Conservationist of the Year. The following year, the focus stayed on the Blue Mission with Sir David Attenborough as TPWF's Conservationist of the Year, and was awarded the prize during the award ceremony Save the Polar Bear in person. TPWF also had the pleasure to hos the Climate Conference where many interesting people had the chance to speakt their thougts on climate and conservation, with Sir David Attenborough being the main speaker. 

TPWF is now in the process of planting trees with the goal of planting 1 million trees! Sir David Attenborough, together with TPWF, planted the first tree in September 2018 in Sweden. Tree planting is a very effective way of reducing CO2, and TPWF intends to not only plant trees, but also forests. The first goal is to plant a million trees together with individuals and companies. CO2 is a global problem, and the first trees will be planted in Mexico and Kenya.  Trees do not only reduce CO2, they also relieves our oceans, reduce desertification, and restores biodiversity and much more.

Please join us in our work to save the oceans, for us and our next generations!
