Clear Reef CEO, Philippe de Lacaze, is clearly passionate about conservation. The company provides a turnkey service, advising, providing and operating live aquatic animal facilities with an emphasis on inspiring and educating visitors. According to Lacaze, this is the best way to encourage people to change aspects of their daily habits to help protect the world’s natural, and fragile, resources.

“We see all the facilities in which we are involved as a means to protect aquatic environments, aiming towards a better and more sustainable use of their resources,” he says.

The company’s social fund is a direct result of this commitment to the environment and a way to promote under-resourced conservation-in-action.
