Ocean Project, The - Since its inception in the late 1990s, The Ocean Project has grown from a handful of founding North American aquariums and organizations into the world's most extensive network for advancing ocean education and action, with over 830 partner zoos, aquariums, and museums (ZAMs), plus conservation and education organizations, agencies, and institutions in all 50 U.S. states and 75 countries.

Seal Conservation Society - Formally incorporated in the United States in 1981 in the state of Oregon. Previous to this, the idea of Sea Shepherd was formed when Captain Paul Watson founded the Earth Force Society in 1977 in Vancouver BC, Canada. The original mandate of both organizations was marine mammal protection and conservation with an immediate goal of shutting down illegal whaling and sealing operations, but Sea Shepherd later expanded its mission to include all marine wildlife.
Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) - NGO that does not campaign or provide eco-labels, but does work to reduce the barriers to action by industry in creating a more sustainable world. SFP has created a database of fisheries, accessible to all, which contains assessments of sustainability and improvement needs. There are more than a thousand profiles now available with more being added every week. This database - called FishSource - reduces one of the primary barriers to seafood companies engaging in fisheries improvement, namely access to reliable and detailed information.
Waitt Foundation - Primary mission of the Waitt Foundation is to protect our oceans from the harmful impacts of overfishing. Funding partnerships and projects in conjunction with its grantees and two institutes, the Waitt Foundation supports a variety of national and international programs concentrating on ocean conservation initiatives and marine related issues.
