Lighthouse Foundation — Coastal and Marine Conservation

The Lighthouse Foundation (LF) promotes science and research, teaching, culture, and the principles of environmentalism and international development in relation to the world’s seas and oceans. In ac­cord­ance with the ori­ent­a­tion of the LF, pro­jects and meas­ures must have a mari­time theme and be suit­able as mod­els for fol­low-up pro­jects and meas­ures in other re­gions of the world. They must be of such a nature as to make people in other re­gions re­cept­ive to the theme and make a con­crete con­tri­bu­tion to an en­hanced aware­ness of the mari­time world.
