Founded in 1972, Ocean Conservancy champions science-based solutions to ensure a healthy ocean for people and the planet. The ocean generates half the oxygen we breathe, regulates temperatures worldwide, and is an important source of food. Yet today’s ocean faces many threats—from systemic problems, such as the 8 million metric tons of plastic that enter the ocean every year, to more unpredictable challenges such as oil spill disasters. Their vision is for vibrant marine wildlife, sustainable seafood supplies, thriving ocean economies, clean water and more to be enjoyed by generations to come.
