More than 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by ocean.
Countless species, including us, depend on natural ecosystems for survival and healthy oceans are essential for all life on Earth.
Today, ecosystems, coastal cultures, and local economies, face global threats such as pollution, loss of habitat, ecosystem collapse, and looming extinctions.
Facing these challenges, one organization is focused on creating positive change.
The Sea of Change Foundation initiates and funds conservation and research that directly impact the natural world we all love to enjoy and explore. Our mission is to create positive change.
By working with local communities and conservation partners, the Sea of Change Foundation accrues thousands of hours of volunteer efforts and donations to fund conservation and research around the world.
The Foundation focuses on three critical conservation priorities: Coral Reefs: Restoration & Resilience, Ocean Pollution: Public Awareness & Action, and Threatened Species & Habitats.
Coral Reefs are one of the most fragile, complex, and biodiverse ecosystems on the planet.
Scientists predict that by 2030 more than 90% of coral reefs will be threatened.
The Sea of Change Foundation supports communities in their efforts to restore their local coral reefs.
In 2016, the Foundation provided guidance, funds, training, and resources to support local dive operators in establishing coral nurseries in the Cayman Islands resulting in the successful growth and out-planting of endangered corals.
Today the Foundation continues to focus on initiatives that directly restore coral reefs or enhance their resilience for future generations.
Scientists estimate that each minute the equivalent of one garbage truck full of plastic pollution enters the ocean threatening marine wildlife by ingestion and entanglement.
The Sea of Change Foundation funds educates, and empowers consumers, industries, and individuals to make more sustainable choices in order to decrease the impacts of single-use plastics on marine life.
In partnership with Aggressor Adventures, the Foundation launched “Green the Fleet,” an ongoing campaign to increase sustainable habits onboard their fleet of yachts while working towards eliminating single-use plastics across daily operations.
By focusing on initiatives that reduce ocean pollution, the Sea of Change Foundation strives to educate a broad audience about the importance of reducing single-use plastics for the sake of our oceans, the creatures that live in it, and human health.
We all love to interact with natural world because of the amazing animals that live there. Sadly, many of these species and their habitats are threatened.
Studies reveal that more species are threatened with extinction now than at any time in human history. One million of Earth's 8 million species of animals and plants could disappear in the near future. In our oceans, 100 million sharks are killed annually for their fins, and the rate of mangrove deforestation exceeds that of rainforests.
The Sea of Change Foundation supports projects that help protect wildlife and their habitats for future generations.
In Sri Lanka, the Foundation is supporting Project Orange Elephant to help minimize conflicts between rural, subsistence farmers and wild elephants by funding the planting of 2500 orange trees. Because elephants avoid eating oranges, the project helps create an environment for coexistence where people and elephants can survive without the fear of harassment, injury and death, while supporting local farmers’ sustainable livelihoods.
Partnering to make threatened species and habitats a priority helps to ensure that resources are delegated to directly address local conservation needs and actions.
