The Ocean Foundation is the community foundation for the ocean.

Ocean Acidification is dissolving the base of the food chain in the ocean, and threatens global food security.  It is caused by the carbon emissions from our cars, planes and factories.  The Ocean Foundation has been working on OA for over 13 years.
 

At Our Ocean 2014, we launched the Friends of the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) to fund the expansion of the network.

I would swim to the point of exhaustion and on the ride home I couldn’t help but smile and think to myself, “I can’t wait to do that again.”

If you’ve worked in the nonprofit world for ten years like I have, you get accustomed to saving money every step of the way. You work so hard to find funding to run your programs, it becomes standard operating procedure to search for the best deals, conserving funds as much as possible. Needless to say, you don’t usually get a chance to purchase top-of-the-line outdoor equipment and gear.
