640 million acres of ocean habitat. Oceana’s teams of marine
scientists, economists, lawyers and advocates win specific and concrete
policy changes to reduce pollution and to prevent the irreversible
collapse of fish populations, marine mammals and other sea life. Global
in scope and dedicated to conservation, Oceana has campaigners based
in North America, Europe and South and Central America. More than 300,000
members and e-activists in over 150 countries have already joined Oceana.
