Climate Disruption is the Top Threat to Our Ocean
Together we can advance new solutions to stabilize the climate and restore the ocean
Our Strategy — Reduce, Remove, Repair, Reach
Enormous greenhouse gas pollution is disrupting the climate and driving dangerous ocean overheating and acidification—devastating marine life and diminishing the ocean’s ability to support humanity. Our four-part strategy directly addresses the causes and impacts of climate disruption:
Maximize low-carbon food, energy and transportation from the ocean
Engage the size and power of the ocean to draw down and safely store carbon pollution
Develop interventions to avoid catastrophic loss of critical marine ecosystems while we rebalance global carbon cycles
Build a global community to innovate and develop ocean-climate solutions
Organized by Ocean Visions, prominent scientists from around the world are signing an open letter highlighting the need to prioritize ocean-based carbon dioxide removal research to help improve ocean health and restore the climate.
How can the restoration of blue carbon ecosystems help mitigate climate change and restore ocean health? Our new road map captures the state of approaches, knowledge gaps, and priorities to better understand the potential.
Ocean Visions is leading and participating in a number of events at COP28 to advance its agenda to directly address the causes and impacts of climate disruption, in order to restore both the climate and ocean health.
Effort to improve understanding of the potential of restoring blue carbon as a carbon dioxide removal strategy
Ocean Pavilion Returns to the UN Climate Conference with Call for Ocean Science to Lead Climate Solutions
Ocean Visions to lead and contribute to dialogues that directly address the causes and impacts of climate disruption.
Statement: U.S. Department of Energy Announces $36 Million to Advance Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal Techniques and Slash Harmful Greenhouse Gas Pollution
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced $36 million for 11 projects across 8 states to accelerate the development of marine carbon dioxide removal (mCDR) capture and storage technologies.
The Ocean Visions Network
Ocean Visions is a nonprofit organization at the center of a robust network comprised of leading universities and oceanographic institutions, and a diverse set of practitioner partners. Ocean Visions works to engage and focus resources from across this network for concerted action, catalyzing collaboration for the co-design, development, testing, and evaluation of solutions to the interlocking ocean-climate crisis.
