Engaging Partners

Ocean Conservancy recognizes that real leadership means developing cross-sector solutions that promote ocean health. That’s why we work with the private sector to create partnerships that make sense for companies and for the ocean.

Why does a healthy ocean matter?

  • The ocean covers 70 percent of Earth's surface and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water.
  • More than 50 percent of Americans live within 50 miles of the coast and 180 million people visit the coasts each year.
  • The ocean produces half of the world’s oxygen. That means half of every breath you take comes from the ocean.
  • More than 1 billion people depend on fish from the ocean as their primary source of protein.  
  • A healthy ocean fuels sustainable businesses and a strong economy in industries such as seafood, tourism, pharmaceuticals and shipping. Several studies estimate the total economic value of the ocean to exceed $20 billion per year. Pollution, overfishing and habitat degradation diminish that value.
