INITIATIVES TO PROTECT THE OCEAN
Talisker and Parley are supporting ground-breaking scientific research in the remote Orkney Islands in Scotland by partners Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Heriot-Watt University and Blue Marine Foundation that demonstrates the vital role of sea forests in preventing climate change. The findings will help better understand where the carbon sequestered by these kelp forests goes and prove their contribution to the biodiversity of local marine ecosystems.
Talisker and Parley are supporting the protection of the Great African Sea Forest, home to thousands of species, many of which are found nowhere else on earth. South Africa has 150 marine ecosystems that support more than 13,000 marine species, across stunning underwater sea forests.
The rich kelp forest ecosystems in Chile serve as nesting sites for endangered birds and safe havens for endangered species of whales and dolphins. Parley, with the help of Talisker, are collaborating with local organisation Fundación Rompientes, to keep the oceans wild so that future generations can continue to enjoy them.
