MARINE CONSERVATION RESEARCH AND EDUCATION ORGANISATION
Oceanswell envisions a world where all people recognize the integral role that oceans play in our planet and are equipped to work towards its preservation.
Oceanswell works to change the trajectory for the world’s oceans by educating the next generation of diverse ocean heroes, equipping students from underrepresented nations to conduct marine conservation research, and engaging everybody in conversations about the magic of our world’s oceans.
Field work is expensive so our time on the water is limited, but the great part is…you are all curious ocean lovers so together we can make a difference!
Our oceans contain the greatest diversity of life on Earth. From the freezing polar regions to the warm waters of the tropics and deep sea hydrothermal vents to shallow seagrass beds, marine organisms abound. By donating to Oceanswell, you are helping us do what we do best – explore, discover, protect, educate and give the oceans a voice. No amount is too little and your support is greatly appreciated.
To find out how you can donate, please email us and our team will share the details with you.

We receive many questions on the impact of the MV Xpress pearl disaster on marine species & ecosystems. To help answer them, we teamed up with various Species Specialist Groups of the @IUCNssc which comprises all the world's finest experts, and put together a series of FAQs.
Over the last few weeks, we have received an increased number of photos of stranded marine animals from along our coastline. As you all know, we have maintained a strandings database using crowd-sourced images, newspaper reports and archival material for a few years...
Our team has now curated all of these photos and handed them over, labelled with all the names to the Marine Environment Protection Authority (MEPA).
A very big thank you to everyone who sent in photos of our coastline prior to the MV Xpress Pearl incident! The response was overwhelming and we received photos from 40 locations along the affected coastline, from 120 contributors in just 24 hours!
