Creativity in Conservation

Each year the Ocean Awareness Contest challenges teens from around the world to explore human impacts on our ocean’s health through Art, Poetry, Prose, Film, and Music.

Making Waves Through the Arts

Our programs inspire ocean conservation through creative investigating and making. We believe art is a powerful way to explore issues impacting our oceans, connect more deeply with nature, and bring communities together to care for our blue planet.
