Knowing and understanding the ocean’s influence on us, and our influence on the ocean is crucial to living and acting sustainably. This is the essence of ocean literacy.

The Ocean Literacy Portal serves as a worldwide one-stop shop, providing resources and content available to all, with the goal of creating an ocean-literate society able to make informed and responsible decisions on ocean resources and ocean sustainability.

The Ocean Literacy Portal is a universal sharing platform. By sharing the world’s ocean knowledge, we are committed to building a global ocean movement to protect the planet on which we live.
