The current lack of understanding and interest in most ocean issues and solutions is one of the most significant challenges facing water ecosystems. It is limiting the support that is urgently needed to address problems that are growing exponentially. The Ocean Agency focuses on capturing imagery and combining it with creativity and powerful partnerships to achieve its mission of accelerating ocean science and conservation. The organization uses compelling images, videos, and other mediums to instantly explain ocean issues and solutions — the secret to success is content that captures both public and media attention.
2021 marks the start of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, an opportunity to raise awareness about the critical importance of restoring ocean health by supporting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 14 — Life Below Water, and increase optimism by raising awareness about and interest in the solutions to ocean issues.
