Our conservation programmes

Fight against plastic pollution

Did you know that 8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year? The Exploi project (Expédition Plastique Océan Indien) has been set up to fight this scourge in the Indian Ocean. It involves research and sensitisation programmes aimed at both the public and environmental professionals.

Endangered sea turtles

Sea turtles are the emblem of our ocean!
These fantastic and prehistoric creatures are fond of our waters and come to our shores, lagoons and coral reefs for reproduction, shelter and food. Their presence is very important to keep a balance in our coastal marine ecosystems. Sadly, some of them are still poached and others are often found injured/wounded in our lagoons and on our shores, becoming easy preys. Helping to protect them through specific sensitisation and educational programmes is definitely one of our top priorities!

Coral regeneration

It is not too late to save the coral reefs!
Coral reefs provide huge benefits to the wildlife, coastal ecosystems and our civilisation. They act as a nursery ground and shelter for marine organisms and are crucial to protect coastal beaches, cities and communities from the impact of storms, erosion and flooding.
A sad and undeniable truth: corals are in mortal danger. Indeed, who has not seen the enormous coral graveyards lying in our lagoons? In partnership with local institutions, Odysseo’s team intends to provide their expertise and knowledge to help stimulate coral reproduction and reintroduce them into the ocean.
