Global Ocean Refuge System

About the Project

Nov. 12, 2015
Marine Conservation Institute

Blue Chalk Media and See Why Projects paired up with the Marine Conservation Institute to create a film about their latest conservation initiative. The Global Oceans Refuge System (GLORES) is a science-based initiative designed to protect at least 20 percent of the biogeographic regions in the world’s oceans. 

With donations from some of the most talented conservation photographers and cinematographers, the film sheds light on the critical state of our oceans and how GLORES is a vital step to conserving our planet’s vanishing ocean life and habitats.
