Beneath The Waves

Founded in 2013 as a non-profit organization, Beneath The Waves is dedicated to promoting ocean health and using science and technology to catalyze ocean policy. They’re broad in their approach, but they focus their work on protecting threatened species, establishing protected areas, and creating nature-based solutions to climate change.

Beneath the Waves strategically focuses on four main initiatives: marine protected areas, threatened species, deep-sea conservation, and blue carbon. These initiatives incorporate both short and long-term studies, innovative new research and technologies or approaches, and collaboration with local governments, NGOs, and the private sector—to catalyze ocean policy and maximize their impact.
