It has been unfortunate and heart-breaking to see ocean life slowly deteriorate each coming day. For every kilo of trash we clean, one ton is thrown in the ocean. With so much trash to clean and so much problems to resolve, there are those we call the ocean warriors fighting for ocean life every day.
These organisations contribute to the betterment of marine life and biodiversity through actions and words. Some of them clean the ocean literally while others inspire millions of people to get involved.
With that said, here are some of the awesome marine conservation and awareness organisations active in saving the planet.
Their motto “Protecting the World’s Oceans” has been recognised all over and people are taking part. Oceana is an organisation that explores oceans in countries “that govern much of the world’s marine life.”
They also win policy victories to make a big impact on the world’s oceans. The organisation was founded back in 2001 and has provided a lot of campaigns, workshops, and exploration for the sake of marine life.
Oceana is focused on advocating and furthering fishery management and restoring the world’s oceans to what they used to be hundreds of years ago, filled with life and not garbage.
Oceana is active online and in different media platforms. Everything they distribute provides information and creates awareness.
Coral Reef Alliance
This organisation is active all over from the coast of California to the great mountains of Fiji. The alliance is made up of fishermen, divers, students, government officials, scientists, and more.
The Coral Reef Alliance is focused on protecting and restoring the most threatened marine ecosystem and habitat. They are conducting research and studies on how to improve coral reef health as one of the biggest issues concerning marine life are coral bleaching and coral destruction.
They have been active in educating people all over the globe through immersive workshops on how everyone can contribute may it be on a small or large scale.
Project AWARE Foundation
Marine debris, sharks in danger, and destruction of habitats are just some of the issues this organisation battles every day. Most members are divers and they spend most of their time exploring the ocean and finding ways on how to improve marine conservation.
When they surface above, they collate all information and inform people to spread awareness and ignite action.
If you are thinking of learning more about marine life and the threats we face today, these are the organisations you contact.
