Our fiscal sponsor is The Baum Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, California. Ocean Doctor is in transition to becoming an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Ocean Doctor’s areas of focus are:
- Conducting and disseminating leading-edge research to identify and map important marine ecosystems, especially coral ecosystems, in order to inform strong conservation policies.
- Building strong international partnerships for marine research and conservation, with special emphasis on Cuba and the Gulf of Mexico.
- Educating, inspiring and involving the public through strong outreach, education, radio and TV presence, visual media and leading-edge Web and social media technologies, while working to improve the quality, breadth and impact of environmental education.
- Advancing sustainable aquaculture and the use of next-generation land-based recirculating aquaculture systems in order to reduce pressure on wild fish stocks and provide a sustainable alternative that supports local communities.
Ocean Doctor’s major projects include Cuba Conservancy, a comprehensive program of international collaboration for research and conservation in Cuba, and Ocean Doctor’s “50 Years – 50 States – 50 Speeches” Expedition, a journey to schools in all 50 States to deliver inspirational education programs to students about the oceans while encouraging careers in science.
