About Ocean Conservancy.
Our vision is a healthy ocean that sustains life on our planet.
Ocean Conservancy seeks the best and brightest to help us achieve our goal of a healthy, thriving ocean.
Ocean Conservancy is working with you to protect the ocean from today’s greatest global challenges.
Together, we create science-based solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.
Ocean acidification damages the basic building blocks of life.
Humans are changing the ocean’s chemistry. Seawater absorbs much of the carbon dioxide we pump into the atmosphere; In addition, more carbon is entering the water from land-based sources. In coastal regions, runoff, stormwater and other pollution makes the situation worse.
The result is an increase in acidity that damages the basic building blocks of life needed by oysters, clams, corals and other animals to make their shells and skeletons.
Cold waters accelerate this dynamic; the impacts from ocean acidification are being seen right now in the Arctic and in the Pacific Northwest. Ocean Conservancy is working with partners across the United States to raise awareness of this threat to our coastal communities.
Focus on Local Solutions
Ocean Conservancy is getting the word out to make sure people on both the East Coast and West Coast understand this complex ocean threat. We need to reduce our carbon emissions to tackle ocean acidification at its root.
There are also actions we can take locally to reduce runoff and support research investments to protect jobs, businesses and the unique way of life our coastal communities sustain. We’re working with partners and people on the front lines to create support for local and regional actions to address acidification.
At Positiv Hub we take our reputation seriously. We do not manage third-party resources. Donors must relate directly to the organization that is published.
Positiv Hub does not support with grants and donations. It does not receive help from public funds. It is funded by foundations, individual philanthropists and corporate social responsibility.
