Ocean Conservation in Action -- A Project of The Ocean Foundation
The Ocean Doctor’s Areas of Focus:
- Conducting and disseminating leading-edge research to identify and map important marine ecosystems, especially coral ecosystems, in order to inform strong conservation policies.
- Building strong international partnerships for marine research and conservation, with special emphasis on Cuba and the Gulf of Mexico
- Advancing sustainable aquaculture and the use of next-generation land-based recirculating aquaculture systems in order to reduce pressure on wild fish stocks and provide a sustainable alternative that supports local communities.
- Educating, inspiring and involving the public through strong outreach, education, radio and TV presence, visual media and leading-edge Web and social media technologies, while working to improve the quality, breadth and impact of environmental education.
These efforts are projects of The Ocean Foundation, the fiscal sponsor of our work.
