Oceans 5 is an international funders’ collaborative comprised of new and experienced philanthropists dedicated to protecting the world’s five oceans. Our Board of Advisors includes Partners and Members who make generous contributions to the organization. We make grants to support large, well-timed projects and campaigns to establish marine reserves, constrain overfishing, combat illegal and unreported fishing, and prevent offshore oil and gas development.

We also provide support to members of our collaborative to strengthen ocean conservation philanthropy.
