In a new video, IMO is describing its actions to protect the oceans worldwide, saying that the “world must strive to do more to protect the oceans.”
ccording to the video, IMO is working around the globe to help protect the marine environment. In Ecuador, the volcanic island of the Galapagos, famous for a wealth of unique plants and animals is where IMO’s GloFouling project is working to support sustainable practices that may prevent the introduction of non-indigenous marine species via ships halls.
visits to ports, shipping companies, offshore facilities, fishers, and national marine reserves will assess how biofouling is managed to protect biodiversity and serve as a model for other areas.
Solar power can also be harnessed. In Fiji, women of the Nakalawaka village have been supplied with a fiberglass boat fitted with a solar powered outboard electric engine, the first such boat in the Pacific.
Scaling up successful trials will help protect and revitalize our oceans
