The crisis of the plastic in the Mediterranean in IB3 NEWS
The Marilles Foundation has been working since 2016 with one clear aim: to make the Balearic Islands an example to follow for marine conservation around the world, showing that it is possible to have sea and coasts in excellent conditions even in a zone under great demographic pressure.
To make this happen, it is necessary to have a long-term view, continuity, perseverance and above all for different sectors of Balearic society to get involved, including the public, private and tertiary sectors.
Although many of them have joined forces for decades in preserving the sea bed, Marilles wishes to add to the initiatives that already exist around the islands and thus give extra impetus to the citizens’ movements involved in protecting the Balearic coasts.
To make the Balearics an example to follow in marine conservation, showing that it is possible to combine an excellent marine environment with economic prosperity.
Healthy marine and coastal systems with a wealth of marine life and fish stocks at their highest potential, thus helping make the region economically prosperous.
Our approach is based on everybody having a role to play in protecting the Balearic Sea, and on the need to spend more time seeking solutions instead of bemoaning the problems. To do so, our initiative has a characteristically constructive and inclusive spirit, open to dialogue and above all focussed on finding solutions.
