Help Us Save the Ocean!

The ocean is our life support system—the oxygen for every second breath we take comes from it—but it is also in serious trouble. That’s why we’re working hard to secure permanent, strong protection for its most important places. 

We use the latest science to identify important marine ecosystems, advocate for responsible management and secure lasting protection. Our initiatives include the Atlas of Marine Protection (, the world’s most comprehensive marine protected area (MPA) database, and the Blue Parks, a science-based award program for ocean protection. You can learn more about the Global Ocean Refuge System through this video.

Whether you contribute $10, $100 or $1,000, your gift makes a difference!

You are also welcome to create your own fundraiser page for our work! With your help, we can keep our ocean’s incredible wildlife safe, for us and future generations.
