Anyone that has been to a Marine Conservation Expedition or project feels that in one way or another has contributed to its conservation. But is that it? Does our part finish there, at the end of the expedition?

Not really! There many actions we can take when we go back home or even if we continue traveling. Here are just some tips on how we can continue being part of the solution:

• Talk to your family and friends about the threats and importance of preserving the Environment.
• Adopt the 3Rs culture: Reduce, Recycle and Reuse
• Follow and encourage more environmentally friendly practices
• Save energy, water and try to use your car less.
• If you go traveling respect the flora and fauna of the place and do not throw garbage in the street, beach, lagoons or sea.
• Try to consume more organic and fair trade products.

Like these above, there are many other activities that one can do to preserve the Marine Environment even if we don’t live near the sea. Fortunately, every day there are more and more people aware of the importance of sustainable practices like Sea food Watch and Marine Stewardship Council that have a webpage where you can find more information on ocean problems and how to be a more sustainable consumer:

Visit the pages and let us know how do you contribute to the marine environment conservation BEFORE and/or AFTER the expedition!
