1. Support our One Ocean campaign
Covering 71% of the Earth, the ocean connects us all. Protecting our blue planet demands global action along a united front. At The Ocean Foundation (TOF), our focus has always been on empowering ocean advocates around the world to more effectively address ocean issues that affect, and therefore, unite us all. A trusted leader in the conservation community since 2002, TOF remains one of the highest rated coastal and marine conservation organizations, with charity rankings that reflect our dedication to financial transparency, accountability, and programmatic quality.
TOF’s ability to inspire real change has grown exponentially; however, so have the problems facing our blue planet. Let’s keep the boats moving forward!
There is only one global ocean and one blue planet. Join us in action today and donate to TOF’s One Ocean campaign!
2. Donate directly to the ocean cause you love!
The ocean inspires us all in different ways. TOF’s CURRENTS program gives donors the choice to directly support their specific ocean passion. By pooling together individual donations, we are able to amplify your voice and create real, meaningful change for the ocean causes you love!
Most of the ocean heroes we fund focus all of their attention and resources on making a difference rather than maintaining a public face. TOF is proud to be a voice on their behalf. So, whether you love sea turtles, sharks & rays, beaches, fishing, marine mammals, coral reefs, the polar seas, or all the other life in the sea, voice your support this World Ocean Day, and let CURRENTS help you turn that ripple into a wave.
3. Offset your carbon footprint
Your carbon footprint is like your shadow; it will never truly go away. While we encourage you to do your best to tread lightly, we understand that there are limits to what you can do on your own. That’s where blue carbon comes in! Coastal and aquatic plants, such as seagrass meadows, mangroves, and wetlands, capture carbon at a rate two to four times greater than tropical forests. A project of TOF, SeaGrass Grow works to restore seagrass meadows around the world, taking you that last mile to offset those unavoidable CO2 emissions. Learn how you can go carbon neutral today!
4. Engage your network by hosting an online fundraiser
As a community foundation, we understand the value of a strong community. This World Ocean Day, better engage your community by creating a fundraiser to support the marine causes you care about!
Through TOF’s Classy and Facebook pages, you can easily customize a fundraiser, set your own goals, and add your personal story and photos. Share the page with your friends and family, and with a click of a button, expand ocean awareness!
5. Give a gift with a conscience
In celebration of World Ocean Day, we have made a short gift guide so you can treat yourself and shop for loved ones, while also supporting life under the waves! By buying these items through our trusted partners, you are helping keep the ocean clean and healthy. Feel good about these gifts that will keep on giving!
