The Ocean Azores Foundation will look to fund ocean based research and conservation projects based on all islands of the Azores. Our mission is to improve ocean sustainability and to leave the environment in a better place than when we arrived. The foundation does not solicit funding or donations from the government of the Azores and acts as independent entity in all projects.

The goals are to:

  • Provide opportunities for ocean based research
  • Promote the development of sustainable tourism in the Azores
  • Engage tourists and the local community in the protection of the ocean
  • Support initiatives to reduce ocean plastic and ghost nets
