Ocean First Institute works to deepen the natural connection between people and the ocean. We educate and empower people to understand the ocean is our life support system no matter where they live, and that we need a healthy ocean to have a healthy planet. We provide opportunities for individuals to engage in activities that support sustainability, biodiversity and improve the health of our ocean.
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.
