Your Nominations 

The Peter Benchley Ocean Awards are the world’s preeminent ocean honors and are unique in acknowledging outstanding achievement across many sectors of society leading to the protection of our ocean, coasts and the communities that depend on them. To date, we have recognized sixty-six exceptional ocean leaders as Peter Benchley Award Winners across a broad range of ocean categories, including: national stewardship, science, policy, media, solutions, exploration, youth and activism. The Awards Selection Committee will review your nominations and select candidates to join the fifty-six exceptional ocean leaders we have already recognized. The selection committee is focused on recognizing truly exceptional efforts, therefore not all categories are awarded each year. Thank you for taking the time to recognize those making exceptional contributions in marine conservation.
