Blue Ocean Institute National Marine Sanctuary Foundation Oceana Conserve Our Ocean Legacy Campaign
Blue Ocean Institute works to inspire a closer relationship with the sea through science, art, and literature. Blue Ocean develops conservation solutions that are compassionate to people as well as to ocean wildlife, and they share reliable information that enlightens personal choices, instills hope, and helps restore living abundance in the ocean.

The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, a private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, was created to assist the federally managed National Marine Sanctuary Program with education and outreach programs designed to preserve, protect and promote meaningful opportunities for public interaction with the nation's marine sanctuaries.

Oceana seeks to make our oceans as rich, healthy and abundant as they were in our grandparents' youth. They look to a future in which dolphin sightings are common along any temperate coast; in which the mighty swordfish, marlin and tuna are abundant once again; in which whales and sea turtles thrive, cod are plentiful on both sides of the Atlantic, local fishing cultures evolve rather then decline and in which fish are a safe, growing and plentiful source of food around the world.

The Conserve Our Ocean Legacy (COOL) campaign is a broad national effort to build support for ocean and fish protection. America's oceans are in trouble and need our help. People who care about healthy oceans are going to have a chance to make an impact in the coming year as the government charts a new course, and we will be working with our coalition to protect and restore America's living oceans.

Our oceans are in crisis. We know more about Mars than we know about deep ocean life, yet we are destroying it with seabed trawling. "Dead zones" of lifelessness, fishing stocks decimated, whales hunted to extinction: is this the future of our oceans? Not if we act now. They are our oceans and it is our choice. Join them in their global mission to save our seas.

The Marine Fish Conservation Network is the largest national coalition solely dedicated to promoting the long-term sustainability of marine fish.

NAML Earth Echo Cousteau Society NRDC
the National Association of Marine Labs (NAML) work together to improve the quality and effectiveness of ocean, coastal and Great Lakes research, education and outreach. NAML encourages ecosystem-based management, wise local land management and the understanding and protection of natural resources. the environment - especially the ocean - is not a luxury item but vital to all life. The environment is not just about birds, trees, and fish. It involves all living systems, including humans. Fresh air and clean water are the roots of a just and equitable society, of safe communities, and healthy families. These basic needs are not rhetoric but the fundamental foundations of both the natural world and society.

The Cousteau Society is an organization that serves to raise funds for ocean exploration, research, and conservation. As well as try to influence environmental politics to "improve the quality of life on the Water Planet." Cousteau himself has commented that the analysis of life forms is not so important as acquiring a sense of how they all interact and present themselves as a living force.

The Natural Resources Defense Council's purpose is to safeguard the Earth: its people, its plants and animals and the natural systems on which all life depends. Establish sustainability and good stewardship of the Earth as central ethical imperatives of human society. NRDC affirms the integral place of human beings in the environment.

Ocean Futures Society Ocean Alliance Sea Change Institute Sea Shepherd
The mission of Ocean Futures Society is to explore our global ocean, inspiring and educating people throughout the world to act responsibly for its protection, documenting the critical connection between humanity and nature, and celebrating the ocean's vital importance to the survival of all life on our planet. Ocean Alliance collects a broad spectrum of data on whales and ocean life relating particularly to toxicology, behavior, bioacoustics, and genetics. From that data we work with our scientific partners to advise educators and policy makers on wise stewardship of the oceans to: reduce pollution, prevent the collapse of marine mammal populations, maintain human access to fish and other sea life, and benefit ocean and human health. By combining the knowledge of science with the wisdom of poetry Roger Payne and Lisa Harrow argue compellingly that man is not the overseer of life but an integral part of life’s complex web, and that our survival requires that we attend not just to our own wellbeing, but also to the wellbeing of the entire web of life.

Sea Shepherd is committed to the eradication of pirate whaling, poaching, shark finning, unlawful habitat destruction, and violations of established laws in the World's oceans.
