We are an "embassy" of a unique kind, bringing together individuals, groups and organizations working worldwide to protect our oceans that are now experiencing the greatest threats in human history.
We recognize Earth is a "Blue" planet: Our oceans contain 99% of the living space on the planet, cover 71% of the Earth's surface and contain 97% of the Earth's water. Therefore, all aspects of our work are conducted according to a blue standard which acknowledges that what happens on land eventually affects our most precious resource – our oceans.
We are an "Institute" as our quest to share and broaden our knowledge of marine life is paramount. We build upon the dreams, theories and stewardship of students, scientists, conservationists and leaders.
