Mission Statement

Founded in 1972, Ocean Conservancy promotes healthy and diverse ocean ecosystems and opposes practices that threaten ocean life and human life. Through research, education, and science-based advocacy, Ocean Conservancy informs, inspires, and empowers people to speak and act on behalf of the oceans. In all its work, Ocean Conservancy strives to be the world's foremost advocate for the oceans. Ocean Conservancy's four strategic priorities reflect the critical ocean conservation issues that will be the main focus of our efforts, including restoring sustainable American fisheries, protecting wildlife from human impacts, conserving special ocean places, and reforming government for better ocean stewardship.

Description

Here at Ocean Conservancy, we believe it's time to look beneath the surface to see where the health of our planet really begins. It's time to recognize the source that sustains us day to day with the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe...to discover that all living things are connected to the ocean. It's time to understand that going green starts with living blue. It's time to start a sea change.

This was my first time seeking and engaging in a volunteer activity by myself. I helped clean up Rocky Point park. Not only was it a beautiful place that I'd never been to but the volunteers and staff were very welcoming. We collected a lot of trash and I really feel like I did something great!I'm scared of bugs so I surprised myself by choosing an outdoor activity but I'm so glad I did!
