Arrels Marines' mission is to preserve and guarantee a sustainable future for the Balearic Sea through marine conservation, ecological awareness and environmental education. We want to be a reference in the protection and restoration of our sea while promoting the active participation of the island's population, and its visitors, in the development of a sustainable environment.
Climate change and the constant impact of anthropogenic activity on the natural environment are seriously jeopardising the sustainability and ecological balance of many of our islands' marine ecosystems. Motivated by this situation, Arrels Marines is working daily on a marine conservation program whose main objective is to protect and preserve the beauty and uniqueness of the Balearic seabed. To do so, the Arrels team develops projects in a various range of fields, such as environmental impact studies in highly anthropogenic areas, studies, analysis and proposals for new MPAs, marine stewardship activities or marine regeneration and restoration.
Regardless of the clear environmental benefits that come about as a result of restoring the Posidonia meadows, any steps towards its protection would be short lived without the support of the local community. As a community that heavily depends on the tourism industry, we understand that limiting the movement of people, or their access to certain areas, would be problematic. Rather than regulating movements we believe in fostering empathy towards the natural environment and giving people the knowledge they need to self-regulate their behaviour. That is why two of the pillars our project is built upon are environmental education and ecological awareness.
Arrels Marines is a local organisation made up of people from the Balearic Islands which is something that is clearly reflected in its values and objectives. We are a team of people from diverse backgrounds, and with very different stories, but we are united by a common passion: our love for the Mediterranean Sea.
