Our Mission

The mission of Bluecology is to foster conservation of the oceans.

Our Approach

We aim to apply scientific, social and ethical principles to conservation planningWe seek integrated marine conservation solutions.

  Our Conservation Projects

Cultivating Environmental Leadership in Youth

Urgent issues such as climate change, food scarcity, and loss of biodiversity are highly complex. To improve conservation education and training on issues of marine ecosystem health, we work with our partners to  pair groups of young people from the U.S. and  internationally to work on  field  programs that combine modern science, traditional knowledge and community service. By linking science with place, identity and values, today’s youth may feel empowered  to envision a sustainable future.

Conservation Education

We produce simple and practical guides to marine conservation which provide insights into some of the complex problems facing the marine environment along with information on what can be done to address and help solve sustainability challenges.   Our aim is to engage communities in efforts that can result in meaningful ecological outcomes.

 

How We Work

Bluecology is a source for marine education and a resource for communities.

Our goal is to empower communities and individuals  to establish and maintain their own paths to ecological resilience.


Integrated Solutions
Grounded in Science

We believe the best conservation planning utilizes the expertise of scientists, sociologists, policy specialists, and custodians of traditional knowledge.


Partnerships

We believe in a collaborative approach,  and in the benefit of strong partnerships.

Funding

The majority of our funding is generated from members, donors and family foundations while specific project costs are often covered by grants from traditional foundations.
