The oceans support life as we know it, providing the food we eat, the recreation we enjoy, the very air we breathe. Oceans cover 71% of the Earth, and the challenges they face are equally vast.

Mote Marine Laboratory—an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution—is advancing research-based solutions to ensure our oceans can heal and thrive. Help us put leading-edge marine science and ocean conservation into action. Become a Mote Change Maker by making a gift today.
