The mission of the Institute for Ocean Conservation Science is to advance ocean conservation through science. More..


"It's not too late to save the largest, most biologically rich place on earth from the gathering wave of ocean extinctions, but we must act swiftly and strategically.”

Dr. Ellen K. Pikitch
Executive Director
Institute for Ocean Conservation Science

DiverThe declining health of oceans has wide-ranging impacts on our marine ecosystems, global food supplies, jobs, recreation and world economies. It also impacts each of us personally. Our communities and our lives are deeply connected to the oceans. Sadly, those connections are increasingly jeopardized by beach closures, seafood health warnings, harmful algal blooms and collapsed fisheries.

There is still time to restore our oceans and safeguard them for future generations if we act quickly. With your generous support, the Institute for Ocean Conservation Science can continue its innovative scientific research that uniquely advances ocean conservation policy and practice. Our work, with your partnership, is integral to restoring and protecting the health of our marine environment – before it is too late.
