Ocean conservation is critical in protecting the future of our planet. The ocean regulates the climate, produces oxygen, and preserves endangered species of marine life. Its importance can’t be understated, which is why conservation efforts are so crucial.
Ocean conservation usually involves three significant factors:
- Controlling further pollution of the oceans through accountability and education
- Cleaning existing trash to alleviate its impact on marine life
- Recycling in order to cut down on overall waste.
That’s where Pro2tect, a Hawaii-based non-profit organization dedicated to ocean conservancy, is stepping up.
Pro2tect is using the combined force of mobile apps, cryptocurrency, innovative technology, and social media to make a positive impact on the ocean. With CEO Darren Fyer at the helm, Pro2tect has successfully conducted more than 12 reef clean-ups along the coastlines of Maui, removing 1200+ lbs of debris.
In addition to in-person cleanup, Pro2tect has taken an innovative approach to further its mission. The organization is currently close to launching a mobile game, called Trash Slash, that will empower users to do their own (virtual) ocean clean-up.
Revenue generated from Trash Slash will be put towards ocean conservation, so you can game for a good cause. The style of this free app is reminiscent of Fruit Ninja, creating an experience for users that’s not only meaningful but familiar.
In addition to developing the Trash Slash mobile game, Fryer has been actively securing collaborations with major organizations that share Pro2tect’s mission.
Pro2tect has partnered with the founder of FXTE, an innovative cryptocurrency quickly climbing the ranks to be in the top 10 cryptocurrency trading and exchanges in the world. FXTE not only supports ocean conservancy initiatives, but is planning to introduce FutureX motors, a range of biofuel, hydrogen and electric cars.
Amira Global is another important, innovative partner of Pro2tect. Amira Global has spearheaded the creation of an incredible technology that sustainably converts plastic waste into biofuel, which is then used to produce electricity. This feat of engineering is an incredible development for ocean conservation efforts around the world.
With this powerful partnership, Pro2tect, FXTE, and Amira Global plan to launch 2 to 3 Innovaoil Plants by the end of 2021, and 10 to 100 by 2030.
These plants can produce biofuel for ships by recycling ocean waste, which supports Pro2tect’s endeavors to clean the ocean using groundbreaking technology. This initiative can make a substantial impact with the up-and-coming collaboration with Love the Sea and Ocean Voyage Institute.
Another partner organization of Pro2tect that values ocean conservation is Mama Kuleana. This Hawaii-based sunscreen company produces ocean and reef-safe sunscreen in biodegradable packaging. Mama Kuleana supplies their environmentally-friendly products to hotels and stores around Hawaii and the world.`
Lastly, Pro2tect has embraced the power of social media to further their mission. They’ve partnered with TrueFanz, a fast-developing platform that allows content creators to engage directly with their “fanz” and earn a healthy profit.
At present, Fryer isn’t the only Pro2tect member using TrueFanz to spread the organization’s mission. Nickole Ciszak, reality TV star from USA Network’s Temptation Island, is also growing her TrueFanz account to raise money for the noble mission of Pro2tect.
Between these illustrious partnerships, mobile app development, and alignment with social media, Pro2tect’s mission towards saving the ocean is going full speed ahead!
