Our planet depends on healthy oceans. In fact, every second breath that each person breathes, comes from the ocean! Unfortunately, only a little more than 2% of it is fully protected. That's why we launched the Global Ocean Refuge System. The Global Ocean Refuge System incentivizes strong ocean protection around the world that helps protect marine life from human impacts. Our goal is to ensure strong protection for at least 30% of the ocean by 2030 in the face of unprecedented climate change and human impact. The Global Ocean Refuge System is a strategic, science-based way to enable marine life to recover and to foster resilient marine ecosystems. To enhance those efforts, we also built the most comprehensive online marine protected area database, the Atlas of Marine Protection.
When you donate to Marine Conservation Institute, you'll join a growing team dedicated to saving the ocean! Every dollar goes towards one of our projects that help ensure our blue planet can thrive for future generations.
