Nonprofits We Love: SeaLegacy
Where would we be without our oceans? SeaLegacy is an extraordinary nonprofit society that we are excited to share with you all. As lovers of the sea and all things living, we were amazed to see how SeaLegacy is using their experience in conservation and technology to build a better future for our worlds oceans.
Who are SeaLegacy?
SeaLegacy, cofounded in 2014 by Cristina Mittermeier and Paul Nicklen, is working towards creating healthy and abundant oceans for us and for the planet. They hope to spark a global conversation, and further inspire people to take action.

What is the inspiration behind the organization?
"Without healthy oceans we cannot survive." Our oceans are more important today than ever. They can completely change the way we eat, live, and breathe. Due to overfishing, climate change, pollution, and acidification our oceans are in serious trouble. With the help of some renowned photographers, filmmakers and storytellers, SeaLegacy is able to capture their expeditions, create different campaigns, start a global conversation, and work towards a change.
We just can't get over this adorable photo taken by @simonagerphotography of a baby fur seal on the Galapagos Islands!
What makes SeaLegacy special to us?
SeaLegacy's passion and commitment to protecting our world's oceans inspires and motivates us to make a change. This powerful organization is taking great steps in letting the world know that we are in serious trouble and there are thing we can do to fix this. We believe that all life should be cherished and protected, and that healthy oceans are necessary for us and for the planet.
