Save our Mediterranean

Marilles Foundation - Collaborators



2017 - 2019




The documentary Let’s Save our Mediterranean– produced by National Geographic and directed by photographer and explorer Manu San Félix, who also presents it – shows the challenges that the Mediterranean faces, and solutions that are within our reach. Most of the film has been shot in the Balearics. Among other issues, it shows the impact of untreated waste water and of anchoring on the sea floor. It includes interviews with experts in marine conservation such as Pierre Yves Cousteau, Enric Sala and Carlos Duarte who, as well as describing the sheer magnitude of the challenge we’re facing, offer solutions for urgent implementation.

Marilles committed to the idea of making the documentary in 2017, and the subsequent participation of National Geographic has made it possible to reach an audience of tens of thousands of people.

"Let’s Save Our Mediterranean shows how we are transforming, changing and degrading the sea, due to the rapid developments of recent decades. But by talking to experts who show us the way, it also communicates a positive message about how to change things for the better. What I like about working with Marilles is their professionalism, reliability and long-term vision. Hopefully more funders will join this exciting project."
