Action for Oceans

The Lewis Pugh Foundation works for the preservation and conservation of our oceans for a peaceful and sustainable future.

Change is driven by individuals, not by institutions. Which is why our Foundation is powered by inspired individuals and dedicated small teams.

The Lewis Pugh Foundation is the world's leading ocean advocate. We convene NGOs, governments, scientific institutions and concerned citizens around the world, uniting them around our common cause.

And we get results.

Our campaigns make a tangible difference because the issues we take on are big enough to matter, but small enough to win. All of them are centred on our oceans.

Life as we know it first began in the oceans, and all life fundamentally relies on them. But beyond what they can do for us, the oceans have their own intrinsic value. They have a right to be just as they evolved to be over millennia: in perfect balance.

As do all the creatures that live in them, from the tiniest krill to the most majestic whale.

That's environmental justice.

We are Oceans.

Oceans produce half the oxygen we breathe, and consume much of the CO2 we produce. We rely on them for food and water, for climate stability, and to support biodiversity on sea and land. And yet we've taken them for granted, disrespected them, and in some cases all but destroyed them. Luckily, with proper care they can bounce back. Which is why protecting our oceans is a win-win solution.
Find out how.

Our Campaigns.

It took just 10 years for all the blue whales to be hunted out of the Ross Sea – even before we had fishing on an industrial scale. Environmental protection needs to move faster than the threat it seeks to counter. But institutions are notoriously slow to change. Through swift and effective campaigns, the Lewis Pugh Foundation makes a tangible difference.

Keep Informed.

If you want to know about something, ask an expert. Scientists and ocean advocates, adventurers and explorers, campaigners and visual artists can open up the world of oceans to us through their insights, experiences and interpretations.

Be inspired.
