Why care

The Maldives are heavily threatened by climate change. With an economy that relies on the fishing industry, the country requires plentiful fish breeding grounds and vast biodiversity for survival. Yet with only 1 % of their waters protected, the marine ecosystems are being degraded by overfishing, unsustainable tourism and coastal development.
