In 2016, we doubled our range of core contributors and plan to continue on this road in 2017. A strong global alliance across government, non-profit and corporate partners is essential to preserve our ocean legacy for generations to come. We also wish to thank the anonymous donations the World Heritage Marine Programme received in 2016 for the implementation of its mandate.
