Oceana seeks to make our oceans as rich, healthy and abundant as they were in our grandparents’ youth. We look to a future in which dolphin sightings are common along any temperate coast; in which the mighty swordfish, marlin and tuna are abundant once again; in which whales and sea turtles thrive, cod are plentiful on both sides of the Atlantic, local fishing cultures evolve rather then decline and in which fish are a safe, growing and plentiful source of food around the world.
To most effectively protect the world’s oceans, Oceana is: MARINE-FOCUSED: Oceana is 100 percent dedicated to fighting on behalf of oceans. GLOBAL: We now have campaign offices in Madrid, Spain; Brussels, Belgium; Santiago, Chile; Juneau, Alaska; Los Angeles, California; and Washington, DC. CAMPAIGN-DRIVEN: We channel our resources in a limited number of strategic, directed campaigns to achieve measurable outcomes that will help return our oceans to former levels of abundance. Some of our campaigns are regional; others are international. They are led by teams of talented scientists, economists, lawyers, and advocates focused on achieving tangible results for the oceans. FACT-BASED: We believe in the importance of science in identifying problems and solutions.
