5 for Life is our program where we give 5% of net sales to selected ocean conservation organisations who work tirelessly to protect, support, and enhance ocean life.
While kov is proud to support the work of the organisations below, it is not directly affiliated with them or any of their programs, projects, or websites.
We have been supporting Bali Sharks since the beginning, and we continue to support them through sales of Great Whites. Bali Sharks has done amazing work saving sharks from finning operations and by catch, nursing them to a healthy size and releasing them in protected waters of the Indonesia archipelago.
Read up on Paul Friese and his operation here.
5% of net sales of all Corals and Urchins go to the Coral Reef Alliance. Working with people around the world—from fishermen to government leaders, divers to scientists—the Coral Reef Alliance leads holistic conservation programs that improve coral reef health and resilience and have a direct impact in Hawaii, Indonesia, Fiji, and beyond.
Check out their website and the programs they do around the world. A truly global to local approach. Also, they put an amazing 81% of their budget to actual programs, showing money you give is well spent.
5% of net sales of all Ridleys go to the Sea Turtle Foundation. Based in North Queensland, Australia, they work to protect sea turtles through research, education and action. They actively rescue stranded turtles, train others to respond to strandings, provide educational programs, and support research into turtle health and ecology throughout the Indo-Pacific region.
To mark World Sea Turtle Day on June 16th, they held an event in Cairns, bringing together the community, marine conservation organisations, and government agencies with information, education, and entertainment.
We hope when people ask our customers about their kov gear, a bigger conversation starts about ocean conservation and what we’re all doing to JOIN THE MOVEMENT.
