  • We can reach net zero by 2050 or sooner and help Mauritania and Senegal produce these resources
  • We want to help conserve the marine ecosystem in Mauritania and Senegal, including through our work with scientists to develop a biodiversity action plan and our ongoing engagement with fishing communities
