About

We at the Centre for Marine Biodiversity believe that the marine ecosystem is a priceless asset of the biosphere. We believe that marine life is as essential as terrestrial life in maintaining the balance of the ecosystem. Biodiversity is a delicate balance of ecosystems, and thus, damage to habitats or its total loss is a loss for mankind as well.

Thus, we work with dedicated and passionate people to ensure a sustainable future where all marine species, great and small, can continue existing without the threat of extinction. We utilize sound scientific principles, statutes and laws, and informative media to ensure that our mission is sustained.

How Renewable Energy Shift Negatively Impacts Biodiversity

How Renewable Energy Shift Negatively Impacts Biodiversity

The posing threat of climate change has pushed innovations in the use of alternative energy sources. Attempts to minimize planet resource depletion and combat climate change prioritize many individuals, countries, big brands, and global companies. Renewable energy is fast becoming the trend to mitigate the effects of burning fossil fuels on the planet's overall health. However, this transition to renewable energy lights on docks and in homes, and a green economy can disrupt biodiversity and ecosystems. In 2017, ResearchGate published a study on how the revolution on renewable energy impacts ecosystem change and biodiversity loss. Experts and scientists argue that the world's transition to a ...

The History of Water Treatment

The History of Water Treatment

Clean water has come a long way. In the age of great water filters, clean water has become as accessible as ever. With a water filter, anyone can collect fresh water and purify it to make it drinkable. Besides that, there are many choice water treatment processes available nowadays for any type of water. However, it didn’t always use to be so. Before modern water filters and current water treatment processes were invented, there were many ways that water was treated to make it ready to drink. Some of our methods even borrow ideas from some of those older water treatment methods. Let’s take a ...

What to Wear When Scuba Diving

Scuba diving is an enjoyable activity that only a few would even dare. If you are a scuba driver, you might have discovered that your fellow divers usually wear clothing under the custom t shirts or wetsuit. These undergarments are important because they help uphold body temperature and safeguard you from the harsh conditions of the sun and many other hazards.

Public Lands Work

Public Lands Work

In the United States, almost half of its land area is owned by the American public and managed on their behalf by government agencies. A good number of water bodies pass through these public lands, hence any pollution or environmentally-destructive activities done along these water bodies can potentially affect marine life as well. With the growth of the CBD industry in Canada, land has been put aside for growing cannabis. This is especially in the case for pure cbd oil. Many local golf courses have provided help to the cause. Low to mid-range players try to allow the scientist room to explore using rangefinders and ...

Population and Sustainability Work

Population and Sustainability Work

Rapid human population growth is a factor that aggravates overconsumption, economic inequality, and pollution. It is one of the major causes of critical environmental problems like wanton habitat destruction, overfishing, and climate change. While humans are not always the enemy, the centre promotes population control in order to curb runaway human population growth. Fishing from the regulated areas using the correct fishing chairs is one step in the right direction. Futhermore, employing fishing motors for trolling can make a huge difference to the environment. These include pressuring governments to empower reproductive health of women, universal access to health care and sex education, and paradigm shifts ...

International Work

Protecting marine biodiversity is a global task. Ocean ecosystems are interconnected, and thus no country has a “monopoly” of responsibility when it comes to protecting these species. The center is committed to protecting marine species located in the world’s vast oceans. All kinds of species; even those that are even very much distinct from each other such as the Okinawa dugong, the polar bear, and the hawksbill turtles are covered by the scope of the center’s hard work. We take pride in involving ourselves to take action and utilize standing international biodiversity protection treaties and trade laws to ensure the survival of many species. With ...

Oceans Work

Oceans Work

The oceans around the world are so vast that they cover about 362 million square kilometers, which is around 70.9% of the Earth's surface. Therefore, the scope of protecting marine biodiversity is a gargantuan task – almost as if one is literally carrying the earth in their shoulders. A lot of problems may occur, especially at areas near human settlements – including overfishing, coral reef destruction, oil drilling, mangrove forest decimation, climate change, and acidification of oceans – which can threaten marine biodiversity. The center tackles this problem as part of its international work and advocacy. We believe that the oceans, being vast, contain havens ...

Environmental Health Work

Environmental Health Work

The Centre for Marine Biodiversity wants to ensure the safety of marine biodiversity from an array of usually anthropogenic toxic substances. We believe that every product of human industrialization has effects on the health of not only humans but also other species. The Industrial Revolution of the 18th century introduced countless novel products which in turn caused the release of numerous kinds of pollutants into the environment. While industrialization was not necessarily an evil development, it is careless and unsustainable industrialization that is the bane of modern civilization. Such careless and unsustainable industrialization is usually driven by the greed of the few, allowing a lot ...
