Oceanic Society

Mission Statement

For more than 50 years, we’ve been working to connect people to the ocean and build a movement dedicated to solving the key ocean problems of our time—plastic pollution, unsustainable fishing & aquaculture, and climate change. Our goal is to improve ocean health by addressing the root cause of its decline: human behavior. 

Why Donate to Oceanic Society?

As America’s oldest non-profit organization dedicated to ocean conservation, Oceanic Society has worked for more than 50 years to inspire and empower people worldwide to take part in building a healthy future for the world’s oceans. Through our work we are:

🌊 Bringing the ocean into our daily lives with Blue Habits —a science-based effort to motivate simple, daily choices that lead to healthier oceans.

🪸 Supporting efforts worldwide that engage coastal communities in protecting threatened marine species and their habitats.

🦭 Increasing equitable access to nature by providing free educational wildlife and conservation tours to underserved youth in the San Francisco Bay area.

🐢 Leading the only global-scale sea turtle conservation network, partnering with and supporting thousands of individuals and institutions to improve sea turtle science, set priorities for research and conservation, confront challenges to endangered sea turtles everywhere, and provide much-needed resources to projects around the world.

🦦 Running expeditions that give people life-changing experiences in nature, support ocean research and conservation, and shape the travel industry.

Together, these strategies move the needle in ways that measurably improve ocean health and reduce the hazards that humans pose to oceans over time.
