To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, Holland America Line today announced a new partnership with the Marine Conservation Biology Institute. The purpose if the alliance is to promote sustainable use of the world’s oceans and global marine ecosystems.
Called Our Marvelous Oceans, the program starts with a three-year commitment that includes adopting sustainable seafood purchasing practices on HAL ships and supporting the instititute’s educational program, which provides grants to graduate students and young scientists studying marine ecology.
The initiative seeks to educate guests and staff about marine conservation research and healthy marine economic practices through an on-board video series set to launch fleetwide this summer.
Happy Earth Day!
