Your donations play a critical role in making sure our work to connect science, society and the sea for a healthy planet continues. We need your help to sustain the pathways for students to become our future scientists, policymakers, educators and environmental leaders. Please make a gift today!
Science is an essential
During this time of a corona virus pandemic and climate crisis we are painfully aware of how important science is to making good decisions that safeguard our health and wellbeing, including the biodiversity of our planet. Good science is critical for keeping our natural heritage, the sea around us and our communities healthy. We maintain the foundations of science by continuing to support and train the next generation of scientists. Your support keeps sea science afloat!
Student support is mission critical
Scientific training and hands-on research training requires periods of intensive immersion. Whether its an undergraduate research project or a graduate thesis, students need to be able to focus on their research projects full-time during critical periods in their education to develop their skills. Help them focus on their research project by supporting our student scholarship and internship programs. You gift helps students become scientists!
