Marine species play a vital role in supporting all life on Earth, but every day ocean wildlife faces an increasingly urgent threat: humans.

Our global campaigns ensure all marine species are safeguarded from unsustainable human activities including industrial fishing, overfishing, climate change and plastic pollution.

How We Save Marine Species

Grassroots Empowerment

With the help of volunteers, students, groups and more, we remedy the impacts human development has had on natural landscapes to aid in the recovery of endangered species.

Inspire Consumer Action

Our campaigns help you make healthier seafood choices, raise public awareness about the amount of mercury in seafood, and alert consumers to the high mercury content of swordfish and tuna.

Environmental Education

Our classroom visits, beach cleanups, art installations and more raise awareness on the importance of marine conservation.

Promoting Sustainable Policies

Our strategic litigation and advocacy campaigns enforce stronger protections for endangered species and their habitat.
