Our life philosophy is to help the local community. We work alongside with the younger generation and we support different projects developed by local social institutions.
AURORA SOCIAL ASSOCIATION
In 2009 Futurismo developed a partnership with Aurora Social, a nonprofit social solidarity institution targeted to people with special needs.
Futurismo works with small groups of young adults, giving them the opportunity to join us aboard our whale watching trips throughout the year. During winter time the participants produce handicrafts under the guidance and orientation of specialist rehabilitation monitors. These handicrafts are inspired by their whale watching tours with Futurismo and are sold in Futurismo’s shops. The value earned from the sale of these products is returned to fund the activities of the association.
Our marine biologists share their knowledge about the species seen in the Azores. We also collect data for scientific research.
