We’re excited to announce the launch of Oceanic Society’s new monthly giving membership program that helps assure the future of our ocean conservation work.

Our membership community is made up of passionate ocean lovers like you who are committed to creating a healthier future for our oceans through their monthly support and daily actions. Not only are members providing direct support to ocean conservation programs worldwide, they are assuring the stability and longevity that allows Oceanic Society to respond quickly to emerging challenges.

From now through World Oceans Day (June 8, 2020), your donations will be doubled thanks to a generous match from an Oceanic Society supporter.


For as little as $5 a month, you will become a member of Oceanic Society and will:

  • Provide crucial, ongoing support to ocean conservation efforts worldwide;
  • Support our innovative Blue Habits work that promotes ocean-friendly living;
  • Support sea turtle conservation programs worldwide and the production of our annual State of the World's Sea Turtles Report;
  • Support whale research and improve access to whale watching in San Francisco;
  • And much more!

Becoming a member also has its perks! With your monthly contribution, you will also:

  • Receive exclusive updates about our work and the impact of your support in our monthly newsletter, The Tide;
  • Get early digital access to our annual Expeditions Catalog;
  • Have access to exclusive content and opportunities for giveaways.

For a monthly gift of $25 or more, you receive everything listed above and can choose to receive one of several free welcome gifts, including:

  • An Oceanic Society t-shirt
  • A To-Go Ware bamboo travel utensil set
  • An insulated stainless steel mug with carabiner, or
  • A hardcover copy of Oceans: Heart of our Blue Planet.


Join our growing member community today, and help us continue to create a more oceanic society. Thank you for your support!
