2019 World Oceans Day Matching Gift Challenge © Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

At Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, every day is World Ocean's Day. For over forty-two years, we have fought to protect every living being in our oceans from the smallest fish to the largest mammal. While we have made great strides defending our oceans, there is still so much more work to be done.

In honor of World Ocean's Day, Sea Shepherd is hosting a Matching Gift Challenge and thanks to the generosity of a few of our amazing supporters, your donation will be matched up to $150,000! Each donation will be used to help with fueling our ships, feeding our crew, and defending marine wildlife. With your help, we can continue to fight for the oceans.

How we can all give back

You can participate in a World Oceans Day event or activity this year to help protect our oceans. It's up to each of us to help ensure that the ocean is healthy for future generations.

World Oceans Day allows us to:

  • Change perspective encourage others to think about what the ocean means to them and how important it is to Defend, Conserve and Protect it for present and future generations.

  • Learn discover the wealth of diverse and beautiful ocean creatures and habitats, how our daily actions affect them, and how every living being on this planet is interconnected.

  • Change our ways we are all linked to, and through, our oceans! By taking care of your backyard and helping in your community, you are acting as a caretaker of the ocean. Making small modifications to your everyday habits will make a difference, and involving your family, friends, and community will benefit our blue planet even more!

  • Celebrate whether you live inland or on the coast, we are all connected to the ocean. Take the time to think about how the ocean affects you, and how you affect the ocean, and then organize or participate in activities that celebrate our ocean.
