A Collaboration for Conservation

In a groundbreaking move, Swim for Clean Seas has joined forces with The Yas SeaWorld Research & Rescue Center, marking a significant milestone in its journey. Led by Center Director Dr. Elise Marquis and Educational Manager Erin Eaton, this partnership underscores the event’s commitment to environmental stewardship. During the event, participants will have the opportunity to engage with the Center’s team, learning about marine life conservation firsthand and gaining insights into the pressing issues facing our oceans today.

Empowering Future Generations

This year, Swim for Clean Seas introduces a new initiative: the ‘School Swim Ambassadors’ program. Through a series of workshops leading up to the event, these ambassadors will showcase their efforts in tackling plastic waste, highlighting the importance of individual action in combating ocean pollution. Their presence serves as a powerful reminder that every contribution, no matter how small, plays a vital role in shaping a sustainable future for our planet.

Inspiring Action through Leadership

As Swim for Clean Seas Ambassador, Dr. Sarra Lajnef OLY, aptly puts it, “No action is small.” The first Tunisian female swimmer to qualify for the Olympics, Dr. Lajnef embodies the spirit of resilience and determination. Her presence at the event serves as a source of inspiration for swimmers of all abilities, encouraging them to take a stand for the health of our seas. With her rallying cry, she reminds us that the power to effect change lies within each and every one of us.

Swim for Clean Seas is more than just an event; it’s a testament to the power of unity and shared purpose. By joining forces, we can create a ripple effect of positive change that extends far beyond the shores of Saadiyat Island.
