In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States, our teams are currently working in Florida, New Mexico and the Navajo Nation, and New York with local authorities and partner organizations serving vulnerable communities who often lack access to health care, including migrants and people experiencing homelessness.
Oceana seeks to make our oceans as rich, healthy, and abundant as they once were.
Oceana seeks to make our oceans more biodiverse and abundant by winning policy victories in the countries that govern much of the world's marine life. Oceana, founded in 2001, is the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Our offices around the world work together to win strategic, directed campaigns that achieve measurable outcomes that will help make our oceans more bio diverse and abundant.
Oceans cover 71 percent of the globe, and they are as important to us as they are vast. Our oceans are home to most of the life on our planet and play a central role in the world's natural systems, like regulating our climate and absorbing carbon dioxide. They provide livelihoods to countless fishermen and others around the world. They also feed hundreds of millions of people and have the capacity to provide a healthy seafood meal to a billion people, every day.
