Celebrate Our Ocean Heroes–Become A Benchley Ocean Awards Donor

At the heart of every great non-profit, every policy initiative, and every success story, are the tireless efforts of individuals —marine scientists, policy makers, journalists, explorers, young people and activists—who have committed their lives to working on important ocean issues, but who, too often go unrecognized.

Your support ensures broader public visibility and engagement.

With your donation, you'll receive invitations to our Benchley Awards events throughout the year and we'll keep you apprised of upcoming programs near you."

Your donation is a tax-deductible contribution to The Peter Benchley Ocean Awards / Ocean Awareness Project.
