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.

Unusual find alert! 🐢 Imagine strolling on a beach at night and finding a bag of turtle eggs lying around? What would you do? 🐢 This is a true story. It happened to Mujazee as he headed off on his night time stroll along Dehiwala beach. Read more at https://www.instagram.com/p/CKELF8DB7Ms/?igshid=uodh3sze7wko
It's a brand new year and we are super excited to meet all our younger ocean heroes again! For our very first OHH of the year we have picked an ocean friend who loves to munch on corals. Curious to know more?
We wrapped up our very first Marine Conservation Conversation for the year last evening! It was an amazing session and it was wonderful to see people joining us from different corners of the world.
Last week, during our fieldwork for the beach variability project, we collected samples of sand from our 14 predetermined measurement points.
