Seacology is a prime example of how a few people with a brilliant idea can do so much. I give sparingly to organizations because I like to feel like I know where my support is going. But I will always give to Seacology because their approach is so very different. What I love is that they look at the whole picture, not just the reef although that is important, but the people as well. They look at the needs of the local people as they try to find ways to save ecosystems. This organization does amazing things with a small staff: read their excellent newsletter and find out more! Hey, it's a great idea to give a donation to Seacology as a seasonal gift!

Seacology epitomizes the community-based approach to achieving meaningful conservation and fills an important niche within the broader realm of conservation work. I like their focus on providing institutional and legal strength to existing relationships local people have with specific, biologically rich natural resources. Real conservation requires building and honoring sustainable connections between people and nature. In the world today where strong economic forces are pressuring even the most far-flung natural places, supporting the connection indigenous cultures have with their natural world and empowering them in the face of these forces will go a long way towards preserving their and our world. I support this work by Seacology as well as more "traditional" conservation organizations because both serve critical needs.

I have had a great love of the ocean since childhood. Sea kayaking, walking coastlines and admiring tide pools have been pastimes for as long as I can remember. Most of the islands visited have been on the east coast of the United States. However, globally, I am very aware that the oceans and fragile shorelines are changing due to human pollution, environmental changes, and economic pressures.

I learned recently of Seacology, and of the many projects they have sponsored and completed to rescue island environments and inhabitants. This is a very impressive group of highly dedicated individuals. The success they have demonstrated over the past years is both commendable and noteworthy. We should use their non-profit as a model for how things should be properly planned and efficiently carried out. Hat's off to Seacology and their leadership.

Seacology is such a great organization with the best motives and goals. The idea of buying an acre of coral reef or rainforest is so unique and worthwhile. It's great to be able to help the environment in such an important way. I am giving some of my "green" friends the gift of saving a coral reef for Christmas and I know they will be so impressed with this conscientious and thoughtful gift. Thanks Seacology for offering this opportunity to the public.

The work that Seacology does on this planet is incredibly important not only to the natural resources they strive to protect but also the individuals and communities they touch with each and every project. I am humbled by their grassroots approach and amazed at just how successful they have been in their endeavors. I recently had the honor of attending the Seacology Prize Ceremony during which they honored a Madagascan man for his single handed effort to save his local habit from destruction-- one acre at a time. Kudos to him for his life work and to Seacology for recognizing how seemingly small efforts change the lives of people and animals alike.

I am enormously impressed with work Seacology has done. I first came across Seacology when reading an article about the "best non-profit you never heard of". After doing some basic online research, I found countless stories of the good work the people at Seacology have supported throughout the world. What a great model: help people and help the environment. It is such a simple message, but really works.

Gave 5 stars for many reasons. Their projects are very special and effective in saving islands and rain forests around the world. I have donated before and I was very impressed by how the staff let me know exactly where my money went to. This was part of the save an acre program and I look forward to donating more soon. Keep up the good work!

I've been donating to Seacology for over 7 years now, and I have continued to be impressed by their win-win projects. Whether they're building a school and saving acres and acres of forest at the same time or providing villagers with a new boat and preserving coral reef environments, Seacology finds ways to make the most out of every donation they receive.
