Our Mission

Bluecology's mission is to preserve marine ecosystems through community-based programs which foster informed choices that can reduce adverse human impacts on the marine environment.


Our Approach

We aim to apply scientific, social and ethical principles to conservation planning.

We seek integrated marine conservation solutions.  We believe in the empowerment of individuals, in a collaborative approach based on a shared values, in networking, and in the benefit of strong partnerships.


Our Conservation Projects

Community Leadership and Youth Exchange

Island and coastal communities share many similar challenges relating to marine ecosystem health and food security. To improve communication, education, and training on these important issues, we work with local partners to facilitate learning exchanges for community leaders and youth.

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 and social 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. 



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.
