A Healthy Ocean For All

Ocean Collectiv creates and amplifies solutions for a healthy ocean. We are a collaborative of experts supporting clients in advancing ocean sustainability, while centering social justice. Our work moves ocean conservation into the mainstream.

Our Work Is About People

A healthy ocean is critical to food security, economies, and cultures. All that is jeopardized by climate change, overfishing, pollution, and coastal development. Poor and minority coastal communities bear the greatest brunt of the declining state of our ocean.

Creative, Intersectional, And Practical

Collectively, our projects build public, corporate, and political will for using the ocean without using it up. We provide strategic support on policy, science, and communications. Our paid consulting work enables us to invest in pro-bono outreach and to foster ocean justice.
