Welcome to The Ocean Registry®! Where you can register a piece of ocean to yourself and send ocean parcels as gifts to others.
We partner with awesome non-profits to engage the public and drive funds for ocean conservation and education by donating 50% of our proceeds.
We are all responsible for the future of the ocean and the ocean’s future is our future; now with The Ocean Registry you can adopt your own piece. It’s a great way to connect to the ocean and pass a “piece of it” on to others, and get all of us focused on what our responsibility is. It’s a great way for people to feel personally invested in the future of our ocean and its resources.
Dan Basta, Director of National Marine Sanctuary Program, NOAA
