Our planet depends on healthy oceans, but less than 2% of it is fully protected. That's why we launched the Global Ocean Refuge System (GLORES, pronounced "glories"). GLORES helps protect marine life from human impacts and encourages strong ocean protection around the world. To enhance those efforts, we also built the most comprehensive online marine protected area database, the Atlas of Marine Protection.

When you donate to Marine Conservation Institute, you'll join a growing team dedicated to saving the ocean! Every dollar goes towards projects that help ensure our blue planet can thrive for future generations.

Our scientists curate a daily news service, Marine Conservation Today, to raise awareness of new research, pressing ocean issues, and our initiatives. Sign up today:
