Our team has diverse backgrounds, from marine biologists to attorneys, entrepreneurs, and business leaders, but we all share a passion for intelligent marine conservation.

who we are
A healthy ocean matters
All life on earth depends on a healthy ocean. Fifty to seventy percent of the world’s oxygen—approximately every other breath we take—comes from the ocean, more than all of the planet’s rainforests combined. The ocean is the number one source of protein for more than a billion people, and most of world's population lives on or near the coast. It supports the biggest biodiversity and the greatest abundance of life on the planet, regulates our climate, absorbs carbon dioxide, and holds most of our water.
