Ocean Eye – a unique ecosystem service payments platform


Ocean Eye is a marine conservation, data collection and financial transfer platform that offers a solution for marine biodiversity conservation. It is used by impact minded marine tourism operators and conscious tourists globally.

The working mechanism is based on animal sightings related micro payments made by marine tourists. These are transparently transferred to coastal communities through Ocean Eye, creating a strong incentive for unsustainable hunters of wildlife to turn into conservation allies globally.

Ocean Eye is going to revolutionise the way coastal communities are incentivised to support long-term marine conservation and help support the recovery of critical species such as sharks, rays, turtles and any other species that tourists are willing to pay to see.

SFACT is proud to support innovative projects that protect the marine environment, such as Ocean Eye.
