SaveNature.org
Habitat destruction is the greatest threat to wildlife today. Wildlife and wild places cannot survive without the preservation and protection of habitat. For more than 20 years we have fostered a synergistic partnership between schools, informal science institutions, in-situ conservation organizations, in-country non-governmental organizations, and the public in the form of families and individuals, all working towards the preservation of the wildest creatures and places on earth.
Coral Reef Alliance
CORAL Reef Alliance takes a multi-pronged approach to restoring and protecting coral reefs in partnership with the communities living nearest the reefs. Our strategies include: Reducing local threats to reefs, including overfishing, poor water quality, and unsustainable development.
Global Coral Reef Alliance
The Global Coral Reef Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to growing, protecting and managing the most threatened of all marine ecosystems - coral reefs. GCRA is a coalition of volunteer scientists, divers, environmentalists and other individuals and organizations, committed to coral reef preservation. We primarily focus on coral reef restoration, marine diseases and other issues caused by global climate change, environmental stress and pollution. We employ a method which allows reefs to survive and recover from damage caused by excessive nutrients, climate change, and physical destruction.
Great Barrier Reef Foundation
The Great Barrier Reef Foundation is fostering a resilient reef for all generations by catalysing and funding science that informs, encourages and inspires. The Foundation is the only independent, not-for-profit organisation in Australia dedicated solely to raising funds for scientific research into preserving the Great Barrier Reef.
Reef Check
Founded in 1996, the Reef Check Foundation exists to help preserve the oceans and reefs which are critical to our survival, yet are being destroyed. With headquarters in Los Angeles and volunteer teams in more than 90 countries and territories, Reef Check works to protect tropical coral reefs and California rocky reefs through education, research and conservation.
Reef Relief
In partnership with community groups and government agencies, Reef Relief coordinates volunteer programs that cultivate an attitude of stewardship within the community. Since 2010, Reef Relief's coastal clean-up program has removed over 24,000 lbs of marine debris from the shores and waters of the Florida Keys. The Coral Camp Summer Program uses interactive activities and field trips to teach children 6- 12 years of age about ocean ecology, coral reefs, marine life and sustainability. Camp activities include lessons on identification of common corals, fish, and invertebrates, oceanography, tides, symbiosis, snorkel etiquette and leave no trace principles.

Establishing research centers for analysis of scientific data and dissemination, and educational purposes.
Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF)
Reef Environmental Education Foundation is a grass-roots organization that seeks to conserve marine ecosystems by educating, enlisting and enabling divers and other marine enthusiasts to become active ocean stewards and citizen scientists.
Love The Oceans
Love the Oceans volunteers form our research teams, collecting two different but equally important data sets. We believe that due to the high biodiversity present, the reefs in Guinjata Bay offer an exciting opportunity for the local community to generate sustainable sources of revenue from the marine environment through various ecotourism based initiatives. To provide evidence for this, the first data set consists of benthic habitat assessments of the Guinjata Bay reefs. The volunteers collect this data during their diving week on the program. Through non-destructive visual censuses, volunteers quantify fish species abundance and diversity. From this, biodiversity on the reefs will be calculated and used as an indicator for reef health.
WildCoast
WILDCOAST conserves coastal and marine ecosystems and wildlife. WILDCOAST has helped conserve more than 3.2 million acres of globally significant bays, beaches, lagoons, coral reefs and islands, we will expand our work. Wildcoast helps conserve 17,536 acres of Marine Proteced Areas in Southern California.
