5 Major Threats TO MARINE ANIMALS
Vessel collisions annually kill or injure tens of thousands of marine mammals. We’re working to change that.
We practice and promote policies that minimize the impact of ocean tourism on marine life.
Our Conservation programs include single-use plastic reduction, beach cleanups and legislation advocacy.
We study and provide science-based solutions to incidental catch and entanglement of whales and dolphins.
We analyze impacts of rising sea-surface temperatures to better inform ocean conservation management.
