Sponsors | World Ocean Observatory


"Rebecca Weeks/Marine Photobank."Our intent is to provide information and educational service at no charge to the public. To achieve this goal, we must rely on a small group of forward-looking supporters who understand the need to communicate ocean information on a global basis. We are committed to the lowest possible overhead; indeed, as a virtual enterprise and web-based collaborative, we expend no more than 2% of all funds raised on non-programmatic administrative expense.

We invite you to join the generous donors below who have contributed to our start-up and ongoing operations. To inquire how you can help, please contact us

Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent of applicable national regulations.
