We have launched our own initiatives to fill gaps in conservation work and build lasting relationships. These core ocean conservation initiatives provide leading contributions to the global ocean conservation dialogue on the topics of ocean acidification, ocean literacy, blue carbon, and plastic pollution.

Blue Resilience Initiative

We rally private investors, nonprofit organizations, and government actors to restore and protect coastal ecosystems that increase our climate resilience, reduce pollution, and promote a sustainable blue economy.

Teach for the ocean Initiative

We support the development of ocean literacy for marine educators- both inside and outside of traditional classroom settings- to be trained to educate others about our connection to the ocean and to use that knowledge to drive conservation action.

Ocean Science Equity Initiative

Our ocean is changing faster than ever before. We ensure that all countries and communities can monitor and respond to these changing ocean conditions – not just those with the most resources.

Plastics Initiative

We work to influence sustainable production and consumption of plastics, to achieve a truly circular economy. We believe this begins with prioritizing materials and product design to protect human and environmental health.
