Protect the ocean

I love the sea and see myself as a part of it. With my initiative THE BLUE HEART I want to protect and preserve the oceans. I would be delighted if you were to join me. Show your love for the sea and support sustainable projects to protect the oceans.

We understand that we depend on the ocean and need to treat the nature better. That's why THE BLUE HEART gets involved and supports projects for people and animals who live in and for the sea. Show your love! Protect your love! Show your THE BLUE HEART!

"EPIC SWIM MAUI" ON MAUI, HAWAII, IN SUMMER 2023

Join me and THE BLUE HEART on an adventure in one of the most beautiful places in the world, the island of Maui in the state of Hawaii. In July 2023, at the invitation of the government and the university, I will swim once around the entire island in the name of marine conservation - around 240 kilometers.

The special thing about it: I will swim the distance in several stages. For some of them I will be accompanied by surfing legends Robby Naish and Robby Seeger among others, but also by other (prominent) residents of this wonderful island.

Follow me and support me on this adventure. Show your BLUE HEART!

The Blue Heart At School

Marine conservation is not an individual sport; only as a team do we have a chance to make a difference. THE BLUE HEART is therefore especially aimed at children and young people. We want to encourage and inspire them to develop their own ideas and become active. In the future, there will be a digital platform for this purpose, on which we will provide schools with various digital materials for lesson planning.

We are working together with the Cool Down Earth Foundation from Krefeld.

You too can support this work by buying a statement and/or a T-shirt. Show your BLUE HEART!

"OPEN OCEAN PROJECT"- SWIM IN THE SEYCHELLES

As an ocean ambassador, I swim in the Indian Ocean from the main island of Mahé to the island of La Digue in the Seychelles, which is 51km offshore. This project is my next contribution to a larger ecological movement, and through swimming I want to inspire others to protect our oceans. We need to preserve and protect what we love.

 

THE BLUE HEART also marks the start of my environmental project in the Seychelles: Fishing lines and ghost nets that have become entangled in the coral reefs are recovered by experienced divers. The routes to the egg-laying sites of the large sea turtles will thus become safer. Become part of the project and inspire others to protect the oceans.
