A week in the desert has reminded me just how live-giving water is. Even a tiny trickle of a river can completely change the landscape out there. Seeing that reminds me how vital our oceans are to our planet’s health. While 12% of the earth’s land is protected in one way or another, only 1% of its oceans are protected. Marine Conservation Institute is a Seattle, WA based non-profit that is trying to change that. They “use the latest science to identify important marine ecosystems around the world, and then advocate for their protection, for us and future generations.” Because of the nature of oceans and the fact that they cover more than two thirds of the earth’s surface, it’s easy to overlook how fragile and important they are. Marine Conservation Institute exists to remind us.
Marine Conservation Institute separates what they do into three areas: Identify Vulnerable Ecosystems, Advocate for Healthy Oceans, and Protect Wild Places. If you want to dive a little deeper, you can take a look at their specific program areas to get a better sense of the kind of work that they do. What I really like about Marine Conservation Institute is that they bring all of the key stakeholders and decision makers together to work towards the best possible result. If you’d like to join in the fight, take a look at Marine Conservation Institute’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Development Officer. They want someone with non-profit development experience, but they don’t say how much.
