Protection of marine life
Ocean Eye is a data collection and financial transfer platform that collects wildlife sighting data and transfers ecosystem service payments. The animal sighting reports are directly linked to micro payments from tourists that go to coastal communities in order to incentivize the protection of endangered and vulnerable species. The mission of Oceaneye is to involve communities to conserve the marine life. By making small payments per wildlife sighted the intention is to ensure that sharks, turtles, rays and all marine life is worth more alive than dead.
