WE’RE PROUD TO COLLABORATE WITH THE MENORCA PRESERVATION FUND
The Menorca Preservation Fund (MEPF) was set up in November 2017 with the firm purpose of preserving Menorca’s exceptional natural beauty through promoting and supporting a sustainable approach to the island’s way of life, tourism and socio-economic development.
One of the Fund’s main areas of interest is marine conservation. Menorca is recognised for its crystal clear waters and beautiful beaches, which is why those of us who love boating, love Menorca as much as we do. However, over the years there has been a combination of issues, such as excess fishing and excess waste in the sea, which have damaged the island’s natural marine environment. Shockingly, one recent study shows a population decline of up to 80% in some of the island’s fish species.
The Foundation raises funds locally and internationally from individuals and businesses that have strong connections to the island. These funds are then distributed to local projects and campaigns which aim to protect and preserve Menorca’s environment and its unique beauty. Some of their current initiatives include the reduction of the use of plastics amongst local fish markets and fishmongers and the recovery of ghost fishing nets from the sea. The Fund also supports current research into the islands posidonia meadows and vulnerable fish species.
Having heard about the fund, we wanted to get involved and Clearwater Marine has pledged to donate 5€ for each invoice we raise, from 1 January of this year.
We’ve totally raised just over 1,200€ for the Fund.
And we invite you, our friends, colleagues and clients, to donate too. From 1 June 2019 we will add a voluntary 2€ amount to each invoice we issue to you, which we will add to our donation pledge. This proposed donation is, of course, entirely voluntary and if you would prefer to opt-out then all you need to do is let us know or simply deduct 2€ when settling your bill.
If you would like further information or have any questions then please drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
