Oceana is working to obtain deferrals for 10,000 square miles of important ecological areas in the Arctic Ocean. Last year, Oceana and its allies prevented oil companies from drilling off the north coast of Alaska, setting a critical conservation precedent.

Oceana is an international organization focused solely on oceans, dedicated to achieving measurable change by conducting specific, science-based campaigns with fixed deadlines and articulated goals.
