WWF has identified the Mediterranean region as a global priority place where ecological integrity must be conserved to contribute to a more secure and sustainable future for all. Together with 5 WWF offices in the region, WWF Mediterranean has launched the Mediterranean Initiative, a common strategy aimed at scaling up WWF conservation efforts in the basin.
The level of protection of the Mediterranean Sea is largely inadequate. There are too few marine protected areas, and those we have are not ecologically representative of Mediterranean biodiversity and not effectively managed. The Mediterranean is also a critical source of food security, well-being and livelihood for millions of fishermen and local people. At the same time, 85% of Mediterranean fish stocks are overfished, while certain species of high economic and commercial value are in an alarming state due to over-exploitation. The WWF Mediterranean Marine Initiative engages those involved in protection and management of marine resources towards a threshold where marine biodiversity conservation becomes a political, economic and social priority.
