GAMOMAT, a German online software developer, has provided its first donation to the Healthy Seas charity.
As part of its celebration of World Oceans Day, GAMOT has donated a percentage of its revenue from the supplier’s launch of Book of Oasis games in December 2021 to Healthy Seas to support their work in protecting the oceans across the globe.
“The Ithaca clean-up is a great example of the valuable work carried out by Healthy Seas,” commented Dietmar Hermjohannes, Founder of GAMOMAT. “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.”
GAMOMAT noted that its first donation has had an instant impact as it allowed the charity to conduct a clean-up operation in the Mediterranean.
For the past two weeks, volunteer divers in Ithaca, Greece, have been removing so-called ‘ghost nets’ left on the seafloor by an abandoned fish farm, which endangers the seaweed forests.
Posidonia seaweed forests are home to thousands of sea creatures, providing food to sustain them and acting as an underwater nursery for their offspring. Posidonia oceanica also produces oxygen while acting as a long-term store of carbon dioxide.
Moving forward, GAMOMAT has confirmed it will continue to support Healthy Seas’ work protecting the oceans through its ‘Gaming for the Climate’ initiative.
