Project: Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS)
Location: virtual, anywhere in Canada/worldwide

About Us:

Parvati.org is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to a healthy world. Our first order of business is creating the world's largest marine protected area in the Arctic Ocean. It is called the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) and it encompasses the entire Arctic Ocean north of the Arctic Circle. MAPS will protect the Arctic Ocean polar ice, which stabilizes the homes, food, and water supplies of all life on Earth. MAPS is a simple, effective and immediate solution to the crisis of the rapid loss of ice and shifting weather patterns. It compels a global pivot to renewable energies and a paradigm shift from short-term greed to long-term good. And our planet needs it now. We are a volunteer team which understands that a healthy future depends on people everywhere realizing we are connected.

Be part of an international group of dedicated volunteers who know we are all in this together.
