Marine Conservation Institute, founded in 1996, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving our living oceans. We work with scientists, politicians, government officials and other organizations around the world to protect essential ocean places and the wild species in them.
Our goal is maintaining and recovering bountiful, diverse and healthy oceans now and for generations to come. We understand that marine ecosystems are essential for human survival, wealth and well-being. Because the oceans are the Earth´s biggest life support system, everyone has a big stake in maintaining their integrity.
Marine Conservation Institute identifies the most important and vulnerable ocean ecosystems, then advocates for protecting them. We identify key threats to places in the sea and then offer workable solutions to solve problems. We base all of our efforts on the latest understanding of marine science. And we benefit from decades of experience in conservation policy.
Our efforts are broadly defined by three conservation themes:
• Identify vulnerable marine ecosystems
• Advocate for healthy oceans
• Protect wild places
• Coral Conservation
• How We Fish
• Marine Protected Areas
• High Seas Conservation
• Ocean Governance
• Ocean Acidification
• Ocean´s Past
Michael Zwirn is the Director of Development of the Marine Conservation Institute.
