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.

You may already know quite a lot about blue whales, one of the most majestic species on Earth, so we searched far and wide and compiled a list of facts that we think not everyone might know. Check out https://www.oceanswell.org to learn more about our work with blue whales!
Can you tell the difference between a dolphin and a porpoise? If you can’t, no worries, we’ve got you covered! Dolphins and porpoises are sometimes mistaken for each other. They are both cetaceans but belong to different cetacean families.
Hammerhead sharks are distinguishable among other species of sharks due to their uniquely-shaped head, called the cephalofoil. These fish (sharks are a species of a fish!) have special sensors in their head that helps them scan for food. #MarineMegafaunaMonday
Green moray eels look like something out of a myth. These green coloured eels stand out amongst the less vibrant colourings of other eels and snakes but did you know that their skin is actually not green? #MarineMegafaunaMonday
