Why Give

Easy Ways to Make an Impact

Share Your Legacy

You love the ocean as much as we do, and we can’t protect it without you.

A healthy ocean means more than beautiful coasts and vibrant ocean wildlife. If the ocean isn’t healthy, neither are we. Because the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we’re breathing right now comes from our ocean.

With the help of supporters like you, Ocean Conservancy is focused on solving some of the greatest threats facing our ocean today. From the Arctic to the Gulf of Mexico, we bring people, science and policy together, to champion innovative solutions and fight for a sustainable ocean.

That’s why for over forty years we’ve worked to protect vital ecosystems, defend critical legislation, enforce accountability of leaders and legislators and rally the world’s largest effort to remove trash from our beaches. Because a healthy ocean means a healthy planet.

You know how dramatically the health of our ocean has changed. What has not changed is the ability of one person — you — to help ensure a healthy ocean for generations to come.

Because you love our ocean, we hope you will consider creating your ocean legacy that will continue to protect the ocean and marine life for years to come.
