This organization has a long history of sponsoring marine conservation and education projects, but they believe that to truly transfer knowledge into effective, meaningful change, they need good communication through compelling storytelling.

An inspiring or captivating tale can elicit positive action in ways that facts alone cannot. These grants continue the foundation’s earlier Marine Conservation Photography grants by identifying and supporting a new and diverse generation of conservation storytellers.

A Brief History of Save Our Sea Foundation

Save Our Seas Foundation, a charitable organization dedicated to the preservation of the world’s oceans, established itself in Geneva, Switzerland on September 23, 2003. The Save Our Seas Foundation supports cutting-edge research, conservation, and education projects globally, with a focus on iconic threatened creatures (endangered sharks, rays, and skates) and their ecosystems.

The Save Our Seas Foundation has supported more than 480 projects in 91 nations since its founding in 2003 and has remained up to date on ongoing research and conservation initiatives that concentrate on elasmobranchs. The projects, each in its manner, work toward greater comprehension and, consequently, better solutions in the fields of marine scientific research, conservation, and teaching.
