German premium online software developer Gamomat has celebrated World Oceans Day with its first donation to Healthy Seas. As part of the company’s Gaming for the Climate initiative, the company committed to donating a percentage of the revenue from its Book of Oasis game to Healthy Seas, supporting their work protecting the oceans around the world.
The first donation allowed Healthy Seas to conduct a clean-up operation in the Mediterranean, with volunteer divers in Ithaca, Greece, removing so-called ‘ghost nets’ left on the seafloor by an abandoned fish farm. And since each abandoned net seriously endangers the seaweed forests that play a key role in the marine ecosystem, the clean-up has helped prevent a potential environmental catastrophe.
Gamomat Distribution GmbH will continue to support the work of Healthy Seas, protecting the oceans through its ‘Gaming for the Climate’ initiative, and Dietmar Hermjohannes, founder of Gamomat, says: “The Ithaca clean-up is a great example of the valuable work carried out by Healthy Seas. We will continue to support the fight to protect the oceans through our ‘Gaming for the Climate’ initiative and are already looking forward to funding more projects.”
