Solutions For A Healthy Ocean

Ocean Collectiv creates and amplifies solutions for a healthy ocean. Our collaborative of experts supports clients in advancing ocean sustainability, grounded in social justice. We provide fresh ideas on policy, science, and commerce.

Focusing on People

Climate change, overfishing, pollution, and habitat destruction disproportionately impact poor and minority coastal people. A healthy ocean supports food security, economies, and cultures. We design conservation that works for communities.

Creative, Intersectional, And Practical

For each project, we tailor the ideal interdisciplinary team from our diverse roster of experts. Collectively, our work builds public, corporate, and political will for using the ocean without using it up. We move ocean conservation into the mainstream.
