Oceans are beautiful and awe-inspiring. They provide a sixth of the animal protein we eat, moderate our climate and generate half the oxygen we breathe. Our lives and livelihoods depend on healthy oceans. So this holiday season, please consider giving a gift to the oceans.
Your support makes possible everything we do. Whether you contribute $10, $100 or $1,000, your gift makes a difference. From working to secure protection for deep sea corals to hosting a workshop on ocean acidification to announcing the Global Ocean Refuge System, we’re making things happen for the ocean.
Please give a gift to the oceans and together, we will create a future for marine life.
Thank you and Happy Holidays from all of us at Marine Conservation Institute!
Together with Mission Blue, we have issued the 1st-ever quantitative, scientifically rigorous national ranking of states’ protection of their ocean waters. SeaStates: How Well Does Your State Protect Your Coastal Waters? shows that most states and territories are failing to safeguard our nation’s marine life, seafood and coasts.
“Despite so many threats to their health, states are failing to protect our ocean waters,” said Dr. Lance Morgan, President of the Marine Conservation Institute. “No-take marine protected areas are the gold-standard for healthy oceans, but far too few states and territories are designating them.”
