Marine Conservation Institute
Marine Conservation Institute is a leader in the global movement to protect and recover critical ocean areas. We use the latest science to identify important marine ecosystems around the world and then work with scientists, politicians, government officials, and other organizations to advocate for their long-term protection.
Our goal is maintaining and recovering bountiful, diverse and healthy oceans now and for generations to come. We understand that marine ecosystems are essential for human survival, wealth and well-being. Because the ocean is Earth’s biggest life support system, everyone has a stake in saving it.
We identify threats to ocean places and offer workable solutions to help solve these problems. We benefit from decades of experience in conservation policy and our effectiveness comes from our vision, expertise and willingness to partner with others. Since starting as the vision of one person in 1996, Marine Conservation Institute has become a major actor in the global effort to save our oceans.
