Oceana seeks to make our oceans more biodiverse and abundant by winning policy victories in the countries that govern much of the world's marine life.... more
Oceana, founded in 2001, is the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Our offices around the world work together to win strategic, directed campaigns that achieve measurable outcomes that will help make our oceans more bio diverse and abundant.
Oceans cover 71 percent of the globe, and they are as important to us as they are vast. Our oceans are home to most of the life on our planet and play a central role in the world's natural systems, like regulating our climate and absorbing carbon dioxide. They provide livelihoods to countless fishermen and others around the world. They also feed hundreds of millions of people and have the capacity to provide a healthy seafood meal to a billion people, every day. Unfortunately, the oceans are in trouble — scientists report that the amount of fish caught from the oceans began declining — for the first time in recorded history — just a few decades ago. Fortunately, we know how to fix things. Science-based fishery management — which establishes science-based catch limits, reduces bycatch and protects habitat — is helping the oceans rebound and recover where it is established. Oceana is dedicated to advocating for science-based fishery management and restoring the world's oceans.
Our vision is a world where our seas are healthy, protected and full of diverse life The SEA LIFE Trust is a registered charity (no. 1149058) working globally to protect the world’s ... moreoceans and the amazing marine life that lives within them.
Through our partnership with the global SEA LIFE Aquarium chain, we are able to reach a huge audience. We run inspiring conservation campaigns and fund projects and education programmes that champion the need for plastic-free oceans, sustainable fishing, effective Marine Protected Areas and an end to over-exploitation of marine life.
The SEA LIFE Trust works with a number of carefully selected conservation partners and as a result we do not currently accept unsolicited funding applications.
Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Our mission is to end the destruction of habitat ... moreand slaughter of wildlife in the world's oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.
Sea Shepherd uses innovative direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas. By safeguarding the biodiversity of our delicately balanced ocean ecosystems, Sea Shepherd works to ensure their survival for future generations.
Expose the Truth. Protect the Planet. We expose complex, global environmental issues and promote advocacy through the use of film, photography, social media, and collaboration.
For more than 30 years, the International Marine Mammal Project has led the fight to protect dolphins, whales, and the ocean environment. We pioneered the “Dolphin Safe” tuna fishing ... morestandard, stopping the intentional chasing and netting of dolphins and preventing hundreds of thousands of dolphin deaths every year. We directed the historic rescue and release of the orca whale Keiko, made famous in the movie Free Willy. We are fighting to end the tragic slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan, as featured in the Academy Award–winning movie The Cove. And we’re campaigning to stop all trade in live dolphins and end the captivity of whales and dolphins for circus performances.
We have achieved victories for marine mammals around the world and we continue to work to make the oceans safe for whales, dolphins, and marine life.
The mission of the American Cetacean Society is to protect whales, dolphins, porpoises, and their habitats through public education, research grants, and conservation actions.... more
Whales, dolphins, and porpoises face more challenges today than at any other time in history. More than ever before, we must explore innovative, strategic ways to ensure the protection, safety, and welfare of cetaceans, and restore the health and biodiversity of wild marine and riverine habitats.
Times of great challenge herald unprecedented opportunity. Together, we can protect cetaceans and their habitats in ways that restore ecosystem health, and in doing so, secure hope for humankind.

WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation (formerly WDCS) is the leading global charity dedicated to the conservation and protection of whales and dolphins. We defend these remarkable creatures ... moreagainst the many threats they face through campaigns, lobbying, advising governments, conservation projects, field research and rescue. Our vision is a world where every whale and dolphin is safe and free.
WDC is a passionate, global campaigner for whales and dolphins, speaking with emotion and wonder, but always with authority. We make sure our voice is heard by decision makers.
We care about whales and dolphins and we want others to care about them too.
WDC’s core belief is that all whales and dolphins have the right to exist as nature intends, not as humans decide. To be able to live free from hunting, captivity, entanglement in fishing gear and nets, and to swim in clean, noise-free waters where boats won't injure them.
Our vision is a healthy ocean that sustains life on our planet. Ocean Conservancy is working with you to protect the ocean from today’s greatest global challenges. Together, we create ... morescience-based solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.
The mission of the Institute for Ocean Conservation Science is to advance ocean conservation through science. We conduct world-class scientific research that increases knowledge about ... morecritical threats to oceans and their inhabitants, provides the foundation for smarter ocean policy, and establishes new frameworks for improved ocean conservation.
The Institute’s research focuses on advancing ecosystem-based fisheries management, a strategy which recognizes that the oceans’ problems are interconnected and that species and habitats cannot be successfully managed in isolation; as well as on advancing knowledge about vulnerable and ecologically important marine animals that are understudied. We are dedicated to developing scientific approaches to sustainably manage forage fish, small schooling fish that are food for marine mammals and seabirds but are being depleted from our oceans.
We also conduct cutting-edge research into sharks, whose populations are declining due to destructive commercial fishing practices, and sturgeon in both the United States and overseas, many species of which are endangered due to relentless pursuit of their prized caviar eggs. The Institute’s research has led to significant policy improvements, including international trade restrictions on great white sharks and their parts, and a U.S. ban on the sale of wild beluga caviar.
The Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation's mission is to protect marine life in the Gulf of Maine through research, education and inspiring action.... more
Blue Ocean Society was founded by two whale watch naturalists, Jen Kennedy and Dianna Schulte, who were frustrated with the lack of translation of open ocean research into information that could be used by the public. We strive to learn more about the Gulf of Maine, and particularly an important habitat called Jeffreys Ledge, and then bring our research to the public through a variety of outreach programs. We hope by sharing information with the public and resource managers, more people will be inspired to learn more about the marine environment and help protect it.
While to many, the ocean appears clean and blue, especially at a distance, problems lurk in the form of marine debris such as plastics and “ghost” fishing gear, litter on the beaches, and a public that depends largely on the use of disposable products. In addition, the Jeffreys Ledge region, located just 20 miles off the NH/MA coast, supports a wealth of marine life, yet is a relatively understudied area. Long-term studies on marine mammals such as endangered whales allow us to learn about whale behavior, population health, and preferred habitat, and promote activities that will help increase whale populations and overall ocean health. Blue Ocean Society fulfills a critical role in designing, implementing and effectively managing and overseeing projects that benefit living marine resources.
