Our environmental non-profit's mission is to increase the number and size of Marine Protected Areas to at least 20% of the world ocean by 2020. One critical element of this mission is that all such MPAs include engagement by local communities and be supported by effective enforcement. Otherwise, they are merely 'paper MPAs'.

Seacology is one of the most effective environmental NGOs we have found in this regard: their agreements with island nations and communities ensure that habitats and environments are truly and meaningfully protected for years to come. We only wish governments could boast a similar success rate.

The Great!

I've been working on environmental issues in Asian islands, and I've come across many communities in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea who have benefited from Seacology's knowledge and investment. It's wonderful to see a non-profit which not only targets environmental challenges, but is also involved in sustainable and culturally sensitive development of rural communities. Keep up the good work, Seacology!

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.

I think Seacology is a great organization. Most of their money goes toward preserving critical habitat instead of toward operational expenses. They do great work and have preserved 161,527 acres of terrestrial habitat and 1,814,314 acres of coral reef and other marine habitat. That's impressive!
