An environmental organization is coming out with the greatest aim that seeks to protect, analyze and monitor the environment against waste or degradation from human created forces. There are many organizations dedicated to achieving measurable change by conducting specific, science-based campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals. Organizations create science-based solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.

When we see what we love in trouble, we act. And we win.

Thanks to Coral Reef Watch: a government tool that forecasts bleaching four months out, based on predicted sea surface temperatures. This helps the scientists have a response time as well as a chance to save the coral before it bleaches completely.


The promoters of these organizations are not only passionate about the ocean life but are also interested in marine life, and that they are dedicated to make a difference to preserve the ocean and everything belongs to it as long as possible. Dive sites, like the Great Barrier Reef, slowly deteriorating. At our part to contribute towards this great cause, we can donate to these non-profit organizations, they have specialized teams that are trained to help make a difference. We are not all divers or involved in some kind of help to conserve the ocean but we can all make a difference by donating.

Making a donation is the ultimate sign of solidarity. Actions speak louder than words. Ibrahim Hooper

With hard work and effort, you can achieve anything.

At this point, as a result of these NGOs and their wide-spread campaigns, everyone is beginning to take action in their own way, no matter how big or small the contribution is. But unfortunately, many of these special places are already gone, ripped up by bottom trawls: large, weighted fishing nets that are dragged with rollers or chains along the seafloor. On the West Coast they have used these for decades to catch rockfish, flounders, and dozens of other commercial species.

Oceana have been working since 2001 to restore as well as protect 275,000 square miles of West Coast seafloor habitat from bottom trawling. They well understand that it is what keeps some places’ lights on so their efforts are limited to the places that have been previously trawled, and protecting critical ecosystems inside the trawl footprint.

With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the ocean.

They core focus on the issues of Sharks conservation in Peril and Marine Debris.

Covering more than 70% of our planet’s surface, oceans contains the largest diversity of life on Earth and affects everything from global weather patterns to food systems. Today's coral reefs face large-scale threats from climate change as a whole, as well as the touch of careless divers.

There has been an increase in the number of marine conservations non-profits engaged in making a difference when it comes to protecting the oceans.
