About the Save Our Seas Foundation

Since 2003, the Save Our Seas Foundation has been dedicated to protecting life in our oceans, especially sharks and rays. We support passionate and innovative researchers, conservationists and educators around the globe by funding their projects and helping them to tell important scientific and environmental stories.

Our centres in South Africa, Seychelles and the USA are dedicated to learning about sharks and rays and sharing that knowledge.

Our Mission/Our Projects

The challenges our oceans and their inhabitants face today are vast. Since its inception, the Save Our Seas Foundation has funded over 390 projects in more than 80 countries across the globe. Each project, in its own unique way, strives for a deeper understanding and therefore better solutions in the areas of marine science research, conservation and education.

The raw ideas upon which the organisation was founded are: a shared passion for sharks and the oceans, a willingness to invest in early career professionals, and a desire to communicate beyond the boundaries of traditional scientific publications.

Determined to expand its role as a non-profit organisation, the Save Our Seas Foundation is committed to the care and protection of the world’s oceans beyond its support of research, conservation and education projects by undertaking activities that promote public awareness. By sharing videos, striking imagery, books and magazines, the foundation employs the power of communication to connect with and engage the public to transform our relationship with sharks and the oceans.

‘As long as there are people who care and take action, we can and will make a difference.’
The Founder of the Save Our Seas Foundation
