Ways to Take Action

Take the Seamountaineer Pledge

California's seamounts are vulnerable underwater volcanoes that shelter spectacular marine life. Scientists continue to discover new seamount species every time they explore, but seamounts are also at high risk from destructive fishing practices and other extractive industries. Only one of over 60 California seamounts is currently protected! Take the Seamountaineer Pledge today to protect the California Seamounts.

Take Action to Protect 30% of the Ocean by 2030

Scientists agree that we must work to protect 30% of the sea by 2030 if we hope to maintain the ocean's lifegiving and climate-mediating benefits. Time is short but global momentum is building. Learn more and take action to help Marine Conservation Institute push not just for more protections, but for quality ones.

Support for Expanded Protections for the Galápagos
