Conservation is all about people.
As a global Ocean conservation charity, we are acting now for a healthy Ocean for the future.
You can be part of our mission.
We can all be Ocean conservationists.
It’s time to Think Ocean. Think Ocean means thinking about our impact on the Ocean throughout the day and making choices with the Ocean in mind. If more people Think Ocean, we can kick-start a wave of action that will protect our planet’s future.
Everyone, everywhere can make a positive difference and together create a healthy Ocean for all. Whoever you are, from individuals to communities, industry to government, the time to change is now.
The Ocean can be negatively impacted by climate change but is also a key player when it comes to minimising it. So how exactly does this work?
Climate & the Ocean
The Ocean Conservation Trust believes that we should look after the Ocean and therefor our planet, not just because it keeps us alive, but because it is also our inherent duty to do so.
How do Humans impact the Ocean?
The National Marine Aquarium (NMA), in Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City, is an essential element in the delivery of our habitat restoration and behaviour change programmes.
How does our Aquarium deliver conservation?
You can start small with just one change and then build up to doing more! You can try these habits at home, at work or at school - tell everyone what you're up to and don't forget if you post on social media to use #thinkocean
Ocean Friendly Habits
At the Ocean Conservation Trust we consider ourselves ‘Ocean Optimists’, but what does that mean and where does that phrase come from?
The widely used definition of Ocean literacy is ‘the understating of our individual and collective impact on the Ocean and its impact on our lives and wellbeing’.
What is Ocean Literacy?
The Ocean is the foundation of all life, an extraordinary and largely unexplored place, teeming with fascinatingly diverse plants and animals which, together with currents and natural systems, shape our planet. The Ocean provides us with food and pleasure, as well as livelihoods for millions, if not billions of people.
