The Skellig Coast of Ireland is a treasure trove of natural wonders, and it is no surprise that it has recently been designated as a Hope Spot by Mission Blue. This area is home to a vast array of marine life, including whales, dolphins, seals, and a variety of fish species. It is a critical area for the health of the marine environment and is in need of special protection and attention. The Skellig Coast is also steeped in history and culture, with the Skellig Islands being a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular tourist destination.
One organization that is doing its part to protect and preserve the Skellig Coast is Skellig Six18 Distillery, a local distillery that uses sustainable practices and locally sourced ingredients to produce its premium spirits. The distillery is committed to minimizing its environmental impact and supporting the local community. By promoting sustainable practices and supporting local businesses, Skellig Six18 Distillery is helping to ensure that the Skellig Coast remains a vibrant and healthy ecosystem for years to come.
The designation of the Skellig Coast as a Hope Spot is a significant step in the ongoing effort to protect our oceans’ fragile ecosystems. By raising awareness of the importance of the Skellig Coast and the threats it faces, Mission Blue is helping to inspire greater efforts to protect and preserve our oceans and the incredible creatures that call them home.
