HOPE IN WEST AFRICA

West African waters are a treasure we need to protect. Globally, seas are being emptied and livelihood and food security are threatened by overfishing. Our ocean is our common resource. Together, we can stop this.
Now is the time to act.

THE ESPERANZA TOUR

The Esperanza is cruising around West Africa, stopping in six countries, to patrol the waters with local authorities and build an understanding around the necessity to protect our common resources. Ask your governments to speak up with a unified voice for our ocean.
