OUR STORIES

Educating and introducing people to the wonder, vast wilderness, fragility and resiliency of the ocean is our goal. We believe that when people understand, they begin to care, and when they care they begin to act and protect. This is the reason Ocean First Institute was founded and the cornerstone of everything we do.
