Since 2001, Oceana has been fighting to protect the Earth’s largest resource: our oceans. It participates in every facet of the struggle through advocacy, education, organizing, fundraising, research, and volunteering, and it has offices in North America, South and Central America, and Europe, making it the largest international organization that focuses solely on oceans.

The organization’s current campaigns include stopping ocean pollution, promoting responsible fishing, protecting marine wildlife, developing new energy sources to combat the effects of climate change, preserving special places, and actively conducting research in order to monitor the state of oceans.
