VISION

Restoring our oceans to full productivity.

 

MISSION

Given the rapid decline of marine resources, the mission of the Waitt Foundation is to protect and restore ocean health.  The Foundation funds initiatives globally with a focus on marine protected areas and sustainable fishing policy and practice.  We provide grants, technical assistance, strategic advice, and support innovative ocean science.  For maximum impact, we partner with unique coalitions of governments, funders, NGO, academics, and businesses.
