Blue World Institute

The Blue World Institute of Marine Research and Conservation was founded in 1999. The Blue World Institute is an independent non-profit organisation set up with the intention to carry out scientific research and conversation of the marine environment, as well as educational activities, with an emphasis on the Adriatic Sea and the wider Mediterranean basin. Their three main programmes – research, education and conservation – provide a framework for running multiple projects, aimed at furthering the understanding of the marine environment, its flagships species, and public participation in their protection.
