Marine life and vital coastal habitats are straining under the pressure of global use. The ocean, which was once considered inexhaustible and resilient, is, in fact, finite and fragile.
The boating community has a profound passion for - and understanding of - the world's seas. Sailors for the Sea, founded to galvanize the boating community around ocean health issues, is an internationally-recognized nonprofit organization that motivates this powerful constituency in the worldwide protection of the oceans.
In 2010, the Sailors for the Sea Board of Directors established Ocean Guardians as the highest level of annual support. Through gifts of $1,000 or far more, Ocean Guardian donors provide essential funding to sustain and expand Sailors for the Sea's ocean conservation programs. Our growing community of philanthropic leaders understands that achieving success depends on long term partnerships that inspire others to invest in the future of our oceans. Please join us.
