There are several ways to support Oceanic Society:
General donations to Oceanic Society give us the flexibility to put your support to work where it is needed most. We appreciate your donation in any amount.
Turneffe Atoll (Belize) Project
Turneffe Atoll is the largest and most biologically diverse coral atoll in the western hemisphere, supporting a number of endangered and endemic species. Your support is needed to continue our ongoing research on coral reefs, bottlenose dolphins, American crocodiles, and Antillean manatees, as well as to support the implementation of the Turneffe Atoll Management Plan.
Oceanic Society’s community-based sea turtle project in Micronesia directly funds Ulithian community members to monitor endangered sea turtles and generate research data that are used to inform local conservation decisions.
Total annual cost for community-based sea turtle monitoring and local capacity building: $10,000.
Ulithi Atoll Coral Reef Project
The Falalop Community of Ulithi signed Declaration of Intent to support the development of a marine resource management plan -- and a letter asking that Oceanic Society lead that effort on their behalf -- now we have a unique opportunity to implement true community-based marine conservation. Our future work on Ulithi represents a significant contribution to a multinational and multi-organizational effort to develop and implement reef conservation throughout Micronesia. Our goal now is to assist the community with the development of a plan for a Locally Managed Marine Area, the next step in permanent protection of sea turtles, reefs, seabirds and sustainability.
A donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated.
