Please help us keep orca habitat clean, quiet, and full of salmon. Thank you for your support.

Oceans Initiative relies on your donations to do the ocean conservation work that we do. We are an efficient, agile team that makes the most of every contribution. Oceans Initiative is a Seattle-based 501c3 nonprofit that does work in the Salish Sea and around the world. We do our conservation science without a big administrative team, keeping our overhead costs low, so more of your donation goes directly to support our mission to protect marine life in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. This philosophy extends to our partnerships as well; we value collaborations with universities and other nonprofits, but our policy is to not pay indirect costs on sub-awards made from your charitable donations.

If you would like a US tax receipt, please use this link to PayPal for your tax-deductible donation:


To our Canadian friends and neighbours, please consider making a donation to our sister organization, Oceans Research & Conservation Association for a Canadian tax receipt.
