Foundation for the protection of the oceans and for a better future
Plastic waste, overfishing, acidification, coral die-offs – the list of ways that human activity harms the fragile ecosystems of the world’s oceans goes on and on.
The aim of the Andreas Rühl Foundation is to support people and projects whose work, research, and dedication help to protect our oceans. After all, healthy oceans are vital to all of humanity!
Here at the Andreas Rühl Foundation, we firmly believe the best solutions come from those who are on the front lines of these issues.
Our foundation achieves its purpose through various activities, including the following:
- Projects to support ocean research
- Projects to support environmental protection and conservation
activities to preserve coasts and oceans as natural habitat for
plants and animals and the basis for human life
- Seminars, workshops, and other educational activities aimed
particularly at encouraging a sense of stewardship of the world’s
oceans and coastal regions among young people
- Supporting organizations and projects to rescue people in
distress at sea
The nonprofit foundation was established by Andreas Rühl in
June 2017. The foundation is a private initiative that pursues
solely nonprofit and charitable aims.
"The future of humanity lies in the oceans of this world"
Oceans are key to the development of the climate, and they are the top resource for nutrition for future generations!
Founder Andreas Rühl:
“Conserving and protecting this natural basis for life is really important to me, so in 2017 I decided to establish the Andreas Rühl Foundation and help make sure that fundamental research continues and that we treat this resource responsibly through targeted research and education.”
... Our projects for 2021/2022 will coming soon ...
