    We are proud to announce that a project proposed by the Khaled Bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation, Science Without Borders®: Conserving the Tropics, was endorsed by the United Nations as an official Ocean Decade Action. This prestigious endorsement from the Executive Secretary of UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) highlights the value of bringing together science and management in a co-designed way that encourages community involvement. Our newly-endorsed Science Without Borders® project aims to help communities leverage scientific data, resources, and technologies to conserve their tropical marine ecosystems and resources. Through applied science, outreach, and education, the program will provide science-based solutions to help communities protect coral reefs, mangrove forests, and seagrass beds. We will also work with communities to establish best practices for management plans, train community members to collect scientific data, improve ocean literacy, and expand existing education and restoration programs to more communities and schools around the world.Learn more and watch the event at the #UNOceans conference tomorrow: https://livingoceansfoundation.org/united-nations-ocean-decade-endorsed-action-science-without-borde… ...
