Given the rapid decline of marine resources, the mission of the Waitt Foundation is to protect and restore ocean health.
The Foundation funds initiatives globally with a focus on marine protected areas and sustainable fishing policy and practice. We provide grants, technical assistance, strategic advice, and support innovative ocean science. For maximum impact, we partner with unique coalitions of governments, funders, NGO, academics, and businesses.

Rapid Ocean Conservation Grants
The Rapid Ocean Conservation (ROC) Grants Program is a project of the Waitt Foundation. ROC Grants provide small grants with a quick turnaround time for solutions to emerging conservation issues. This complements the Waitt Foundation’s existing major grants program and is responsive to conservation opportunities, supports higher-risk ideas at a low financial cost, and engages with small, local NGOs on a global scale.
