We bring our organization's mission to life in four core roles:
Cultivate connections and exchanges across communities, knowledge systems and boundaries.
Identify ocean knowledge gaps and opportunities to catalyze actions centered on community needs.
Share the stories of ocean actions, raising awareness, and highlighting diverse work in the Northeast Pacific.
Mobilize knowledge and resources to accelerate transformative solutions.

We strive for inclusion of diverse voices and the co-design and co-production of projects with the communities most impacted by our work.
