September 22, 2020

Watch and learn about the progress the Species in the Spotlight initiative has made in the last 5 years.

The Species in the Spotlight initiative focuses on the immediate actions we can take to stabilize endangered marine life populations that are most at-risk of extinction. 


Since 2015, we have made real progress. Through techniques such as captive breeding, reintroductions, and habitat restoration, we are working with partners to bring these species back.

They are all an important part of the habitat, the ecosystem, and the world we all share. Bringing them back will make our world richer and more balanced.
