NAUSICAÁ AND ITS CHARITABLE FOUNDATION

Nausicaá began a mission over 25 years ago: “To give people a chance to discover the Ocean, to give them reasons to cherish it, and to give them the knowledge they need to live in harmony with it”.

Nausicaá – a centre of excellence recognized by the UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission – has created a charitable foundation. The aim is to prolong and grow our educational mission, so people everywhere can enjoy a sustainable HEALTHY LIFE on a HEALTHY PLANET.

 

The aim of Nausicaá’s Charitable Foundation is to raise awareness about the importance of acting responsibly and using the oceans resources in a sustainable manner. The projects supported by Nausicaá’s Charitable Foundation will be selected for their focus on these essential themes.

 

SCOPE:

PRESERVING BIODIVERSITY

Contribute to the protection of certain species in their natural habitats, species which are on display to the public at Nausicaá, and which we call “ambassador species”.

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

Particularly into Nausicaá’s ambassador species and technological innovation.

 

EDUCATION AND CITIZENSHIP

“The sea and oceans are both magical and mysterious, strong and fragile. They represent a vital living resource for Mankind, a link between different populations, creating opportunities for exchange, and providing leisure activities.

Nausicaá has created its Charitable Foundation to reinforce our message, aimed at each and every one of the planet’s inhabitants.

Individuals, companies, associations, institutions, governments, local authorities… Become an active citizen of the Blue Society.”  

Yves Ducrocq, President of the Nausicaá’s Charitable Foundation

Ongoing projects

The Island of Malpelo, off the coast of Colombia, is home to a vast marine sanctuary, sheltering many threatened species. The natural environment around the island has been recreated in Nausicaá’s Big Aquarium. Visitors can discover this living, open-sea oasis, listed as World Heritage since 2006.

The Malpelo Foundation leads actions on the ground to understand why the hammerhead shark population is declining. Nausicaá has decided to support this project, and we call on the public to join us.

Mediterranean MPAs

The association for the Sustainable Financing of Mediterranean MPAs (MPAs) aims to generate sustainable funding for MPAs in the region.

These protected marine areas ensure both the preservation of the marine ecosystem, and the economic development of local communities.

Nausicaá’s Charitable Foundation is committed to supporting the Mediterranean MPAs project. This project is a perfect illustration of how to reconcile the needs of Humanity with those of the Sea, thereby ensuring sustainable development.
