Ocean Conservancy Inc.
From the Arctic to the Gulf of Mexico to the halls of Congress, Ocean Conservancy educates and empowers people to take action on behalf of the ocean. We make ocean issues accessible and engaging, bringing science, political action and communications together to condition the social climate for change and protect the ocean for future generations.
We can save the oceans and feed the world. Oceana is the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. We run science-based campaigns and seek to win policy victories that can restore ocean biodiversity and ensure that the oceans are abundant and can feed hundreds of millions of people. Oceana victories have already helped to create policies that could increase fish populations in its countries by as much as 40 percent and that have protected more than 1 million square miles of ocean. We have campaign offices in the countries that control close to 25 percent of the world's wild fish catch, including in North, South and Central America, Asia, and Europe.
The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network. Founded in 1984 by a handful of visionary surfers in Malibu, California who were concerned about threats to their local break, the Surfrider Foundation now maintains over 50,000 members and 80 grassroots chapters worldwide.

The Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) is an environmental NGO that is on a mission to save the world's coral reefs. Founded in 1994, CORAL has a history of working collaboratively with communities to reduce direct threats to reefs. Recently, CORAL led scientific research into how corals adapt to climate change and what this means for conservation today. By combining its community-centered conservation approach and scientific expertise, CORAL creates the conditions that give reefs around the world the best chance to thrive for generations to come.
