What Guides Us

Our core values define who we are. They guide everything we do and how we do it.

We are Connection

We are connected and we connect people to the ocean because the ocean connects us all. We are united by our shared passion for the ocean and the belief that no action is too small to protect it. We believe that there's one ocean, one team - Together we're Team Ocean.

We are Empowerment

We believe in a people-powered movement. We empower a global community of agents of positive change for the ocean because large-scale positive transformation starts with each and every one of us acting locally for global impact.

We are Authenticity

We believe in an evidence and science-based approach to ocean conservation. We focus on the long term and we strive for sustainable and enduring results. We inspire action with our hearts as well as our minds.

We are Collaboration

We understand that we’re stronger when we join our efforts together.  We are committed to working with individuals, businesses, NGOs, corporate partners on a collaborative basis to combine our efforts, maximise impact and drive results.

We are Positive Change

We recognize that change itself is a constant and that change is needed to create solutions.

We believe that each of us, every day, has the power to engage in making the world a better place. We don't just want to conserve the ocean - we want to live in a world where the ocean no longer needs protecting.
