Seychelles President’s Underwater Speech – GK Dose

Seychelles President’s Underwater Speech

Seychelles President Danny Faure delivered a speech from deep below the ocean’s surface. Seychelles President made a global plea for stronger protection of the Oceans which are beating blue heart of our planet.

The underwater speech comes at a time when many island nations including Seychelles threatened by global warming. Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, off East Africa. Small island nations like Seychelles are among the most vulnerable to the rise in sea levels caused by climate change.

The speech was made during a visit to an ambitious British-led science expedition, Nekton Mission exploring the Indian Ocean depths.

Nekton Mission

Nekton Mission is aimed at enhancing the humanities knowledge and understanding of the world’s oceans to speed up the protection and governance of our last great wilderness, the deep ocean.

Nekton is an independent, not-for-profit research institute working in collaboration with the University of Oxford.

Nekton’s missions are undertaken with host nations and combine scientific research, capacity development, ocean governance and public engagement.

Nekton Mission in the Indian Ocean named First Descent is a series of expeditions to explore and conserve the world’s most unknown and least protected ocean, the Indian Ocean.

The data from the Nekton Mission will be used to help Seychelles expand its policy of protecting 30% of its national waters by 2020.
