Changing Tides, Changing Lives

The ocean is key to mitigating the most challenging effects of climate change for all of us. Its biodiversity makes it the planet’s largest carbon sink, and restoring and conserving our marine environments and coastal habitats will protect the 1.4 billion people currently living in regions that will be directly influenced by changing ocean conditions.

The communities that contribute the least to global emissions are unfortunately the communities with the most to lose, as they are disproportionately affected by extreme weather patterns, sea level rise, decreasing food security and disruptions to the global economy.

For nearly twenty years now, we have strived to bridge the gap between philanthropy – which has historically given the ocean only 7% of environmental grantmaking, and ultimately, less than 1% of all philanthropy – with the communities that need this funding for marine science and conservation the most. Your contribution is invaluable for all who fight to preserve their natural resources while increasing our collective climate resilience against what is to come.
