Happy World Oceans Day!

Happy World Oceans Day from WildAid!

With your support, WildAid is answering the call for stronger safeguarding and enforcement of the world's marine protected areas - designated sanctuaries that are vital for mantas, sea turtles, sharks and other marine animals.

For World Oceans Day this year, we celebrated our partnership with Misool Foundation in Raja Ampat. Situated in a remote corner of Indonesia, Raja Ampat’s coral reefs lie at the epicenter of marine biodiversity, in the heart of the Coral Triangle. The region is home to 75% of the world’s known coral species, and more than 1,500 species of fish.
