Protecting our Blue Heart with Biotherm
With the creation of their Waterlovers platform which encourages research into blue biotechnology, sustainable practices and ecological product formulas, as well as their work alongside Mission Blue, Biotherm are committed to raising awareness for the health of our oceans. Since 2012, the WaterLovers initiative has supported Dr Sylvia Earle and the Mission Blue team, donating more than €700,000 towards furthering their work. Dedicated to exploring and caring for the ocean, this foundation selects Hope Spots in order to target certain areas of the ocean to restore and protect.
Heal the ocean with a new Hope Spot in Svalbard, Spitzbergen
In the past, Mission Blue and Biotherm have chosen Hope Spots in Antarctica, The Arctic, the Eastern Pacific Seascape and Fiji, focusing on a range of different causes including protection of polar bears, coral reefs, turtles and marine ecosystems.
This year, the team are focusing their efforts on Svalbard, Spitzbergen in Norway, seeking to fund a critical research project on global warming. Located in the chilly waters between mainland Norway and the North Pole, this diverse ecological system is home to unique habitats and marine species that are found nowhere else in the world, however are threatened by the effects of global warming. What with ice melting and the glaciers retreating, species such as polar bears, arctic birds and marine life are struggling to live in these unpredictable conditions.
