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.

The Peter Benchley Ocean Awards are the world’s preeminent ocean awards and are unique in acknowledging excellence and outstanding achievement across a wide range of marine conservation initiatives.

Your support ensures broader public visibility and engagement.

Now more than ever, the public needs to hear about these important ocean conservation success stories. By making a tax-deductible donation to The Peter Benchley Ocean Awards / Ocean Awareness Project, you are providing the vital support we need to showcase the innovative ocean projects that our Benchley winners are working on in the United States and around the globe.

The blue community’s best leaders need our support.

Ocean conservation momentum is growing, but each and every marine discipline faces funding and public awareness challenges. Small ripples of support can lead to big waves of opportunity to protect our seas, coastlines and wildlife.
