Help the Ocean Get Back in Shape

Our health and the health of the planet depends on a healthy ocean. National Geographic is committed to exploring how a healthier ocean can sustain life for future generations, and it’s time to take action. Everyone can make a positive change and inspire others to act and be part of the solutions that will secure our future and the future of the planet.

Our vision is a healthy and productive ocean that benefits people and nature. Our work is focused on restoring the health and productivity of the ocean through a variety of innovative approaches and partnerships that will:

  • magnify the application of marine reserves, the most powerful tool for ocean restoration;
  • replace the “race to the bottom” system of fishing with one that generates long-term economic, social, and environmental benefits; and
  • raise awareness worldwide to the benefits of creating marine protected areas and restoring fisheries.
