There are many fine organizations working to save the seas and its creatures. Sea Kind salutes them all.
As an example, the leader in preserving our whale population is the International Whaling Commission. This organization has led the world-wide effort to save all whale species from extinction. The results are impressive. Read in National Geographic how these efforts have brought Humpback Whales back from near extinction.
There are many heroes leading the efforts to educate regarding sea issues and to implementing the changes which will resolve them. Sea-Kind is committed to recognizing and supporting these organizations. We present a few of these organizations. Help us support them.
