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.Our Story

“After learning about litter, global warming, and invasive species last year, I realized that our ignorance has become a huge problem, and I knew I had to do something. I just didn’t know what. When my teacher told me about Bow Seat, I had my answer. It was a way for me to express my concern and send a message to people about ocean pollution in a creative way. We only have one Earth, and it is our job to take good care of it.”
