Oceans are the ultimate commons, connected by the salty waters that flow around the globe – a fragile blue expanse that connects us all, and on which we are all intimately dependent. But our oceans are increasingly threatened. Growing impacts and our dependence on our oceans requires us to join forces and forge meaningful collaborations that transcend borders, cultures, classes, and sectors. This intention to build alliances to catalyse positive change across our marine footprint, lies at the heart of Oceans Without Borders.
Oceans Without Borders is a unique collaboration between &Beyond – a luxury travel company with its roots in conservation and experiential guest experiences, and Africa Foundation – a non-profit organisation dedicated to community-led development and conservation of Africa’s natural environments. Bringing together broad expertise, and working intimately with coastal and island communities, OWB is dedicated to marine conservation and community development at sites where &Beyond and Africa Foundation operate, including in Africa, South Asia and South America.
