Recover the ocean and beat plastic pollution

Recover the ocean and beat plastic pollution


From conserving marine biodiversity to awareness raising and seafood consumption, Associação Natureza Portugal, or ANP, runs several projects that are contributing to a healthier ocean.

Based in the coastal city of Lisbon, Portugal, the non-governmental organization works in line with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

Ahead of the UN Ocean Conference, which is taking place there at the end of June, UN News’ Ana Carmo spoke on the phone with ANP’s Director of Conservation and Policy, Catarina Grilo, and Nuno Barros, a specialist in Ocean and Fisheries.

She starts by asking them how co-managing small-scale fisheries can contribute to ocean health.
