MISSION BLUE/SYLVIA EARL ALLIANCE
Has partnered with my family’s outreach conservation project ISLAND REACH
To work with THE OCEAN FOUNDATION
To raise funds for Island Reach to continue providing R.V. Llyr and her crew, in support of the Vanua-tai in their crucial role conserving their reefs in the Coral Sea.
The Indiegogo campaign: A VESSEL FOR THE VANUA-TAI has videos and a platform for accepting donations. To date, Island Reach has funded its project with its own farm produce and labor, with the crew returning to New England every fall and winter to produce Maple Sugar, and then sailing in the South Pacific summers using the R.V. Llyr as a support platform for farmers and fishers in Vanuatu. They provide donated Aqualung snorkles and masks to help the Vanua-tai conservation group teach and practice reef conservation, Crown of Thorns removal, and many other projects supporting the initiative of the island archipelago’s own conservation groups.
