WHAT IS OCEANA?

Founded in 2001, it’s the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Their offices around the world work together to win strategic, directed campaigns that will help make our oceans more biodiverse and abundant.

Since its early days, Oceana has achieved hundreds of concrete policy victories for marine life and habitats. From stopping bottom trawling in sensitive habitat areas to protecting sea turtles from commercial fishing gear, our victories represent a new hope for the world's oceans.

  • In the past 10 years, we’ve made more plastic than the last century. By 2050, the pollution of fish will be outnumbered by our dumped plastic. [Science Advances Magazine]
  • There are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic waste estimated to be in our oceans. 269,000 tons float, 4 billion microfibers per km² dwell below the surface. [National Geographic]
  • In terms of plastic, 8.3 million tons are discarded in the sea yearly. Of which, 236,000 are ingestible microplastics that marine creatures mistake for food. [UNESCO]
  • Plastics take 500-1000 years to degrade; currently 79% is sent to landfills or the ocean, while only 9% is recycled, and 12% gets incinerated. [PNAS]

"Bring your own products when you travel! I bring my own shampoo, conditioner, cleansers and moisturizers so I know I won’t contribute to single-use plastics being dumped into our oceans.”

"People always ask me about sustainable seafood, and there’s a helpful acronym I picked up: WLLS. It stands for Wild, Little, Local, Shellfish. Buying seafood that meets one or more of those criteria means you can feel pretty good about your seafood consumption.”
