Love The Oceans is a grassroots marine conservation charity dedicated to preserving the marine ecosystem of Jangamo Bay, Mozambique. They're not your typical organization – they're on a mission to establish Jangamo as a Marine Protected Area (MPA) through evidence-based research, community-led initiatives, and immersive expeditions. They do fisheries, coral, megafauna, trash and turtle research and have an array of capacity-strengthening projects. They were honoured to be recognized as one of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's global grassroots #forcesforchange and recently received the Ocean Award in the Young Initiative category in recognition of their work. Their impact was further acknowledged when their area was established as a Mission Blue Hope Spot. Their expeditions are designed to equip students for a career in marine biology, offering training from experienced marine biologists, a CV workshop, career advice, and hands-on experience. Students also have the opportunity to collect their dissertation data with them.

Come along to find out more about their research, how you can get involved and ask any questions you may have!

This event is held in collaboration with Women In Science society.
