An international funders’ collaborative comprised of new and experienced philanthropists dedicated to protecting the world’s five oceans.
Community-Driven Conservation in the Pacific
In partnership with native leaders and local communities, Oceans 5 is supporting the development of several large marine reserves protecting hundreds of thousands of kilometers of ecological areas in the Pacific Ocean -- the Cook Islands, Kiribati, Palau and Niue.
World’s Largest Marine Reserve
The Pacific Remote Islands National Marine Monument will conserve in perpetuity 1.2 million square kilometers, making it the largest marine reserve in the world.
Protecting the Far North
Several marine reserves are in development with Native communities in Canada and Greenland, including one key project in Hudson Bay to conserve threatened beluga whale habitat. Oceans 5 has set a goal of protecting 10% of vital Arctic seascapes.
Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.Explore Our Programs
