LAST TWEETS

The #InternationalMangroveDay is celebrated every year on 26 July as a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of mangroves as a “unique, special and vulnerable ecosystem” and to promote their sustainable management, conservation and use.

Our proposal to the UNDP's Ocean Innovation Challenge has been shortlisted! We are hoping to receive funds to bring the FAO’s fishery IDs to the seafood industry. Wish us luck in Round 2! @UNDPOceanInnov #OceanInnovationChallenge
