Review for SEACOLOGY, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

What I like about Seacology is that while saving ocean and island environments, their projects often have a big educational component, so islanders (especially school kids) understand and are inspired to save their own habitats. Seacology understands that this is the only way to create lasting social and environmental change.

Role:  Donor & I will donate more to this organization in the future.

Review for SEACOLOGY, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There is no "fat" and no pretention to Seacology. This is not an organization of First World folks having their own agenda for islanders around the globe. No, this is an organization of people who listen to what the needs of local people are - and find a "win win" solution to problems so that islanders in poor countries can improve their lives and save their environment at the same time. Also, really important to me is that Seacology gets huge bang for it's bucks. I know these people. They are smart, innovative, dedicated, and sound

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seacology does such great work they have inspired people in other parts of the world to set up Seacolgy chapters. There are now chapters in the UK, Scandanavia, Germany,and Japan.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Everyone in this small office is smart, dedicated, passionate about saving the world's oceans and island envirorments.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

With 10 million bucks Seacolgy would just do more of the outstanding work that they are currecntly doing - which would be a huge benefit to the planet.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
