The oceans are critical and essential to our planet. They cover most of our planet with water—and provide the nearly half of the oxygen that allows for life on land. When healthy, they are a natural carbon sink, providing a natural way to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere—critical to climate change mitigation efforts. Life continues to be sustained by the oceans. Yet, despite being critically important to many forms of life on our planet, our oceans have been—and continue to be—destroyed. Worse still, work to support a healthy ocean is severely underfunded.
We employ both grants and impact investments to support work towards our goal: a future where the ocean is healthy—where the ocean supports its natural biodiversity and is able to continue to support the broader ecosystem (including the climate, people, and animals) that rely on healthy waters. We are committed to supporting key partners working on one of our three main areas of focus on the oceans: marine protected areas, overfishing, and plastic pollution. Our initial set of grantee partners include:
