OUR APPROACH

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.

EXPEDITIONS

We partner with governments to help them understand & protect our ocean resources. 

OUR OCEANS ARE DECLINING AT AN ALARMING RATE

By creating protected areas, sustainable fisheries, supporting innovative science & communication, and encouraging governments to protect their resources, we have the chance to return our ocean to a thriving ecosystem.

Science shows that a minimum of 30% protection of ocean habitats is necessary to allow ecosystems to recover.
