Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is the world's leading, independent non-profit organization dedicated to ocean research, exploration, and education. Their scientists and engineers push the boundaries of knowledge about the ocean to reveal its impacts on their planet and their lives. The ocean is a defining feature of their planet and crucial to life on Earth, yet it remains one of the planet’s last unexplored frontiers. For this reason, WHOI scientists and engineers are committed to understanding all facets of the ocean as well as its complex connections with Earth’s atmosphere, land, ice, seafloor, and life—including humanity. This is essential not only to advance knowledge about their planet, but also to ensure society’s long-term welfare and to help guide human stewardship of the environment. WHOI researchers are also dedicated to training future generations of ocean science leaders, to providing unbiased information that informs public policy and decision-making, and to expanding public awareness about the importance of the global ocean and its resources. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is dedicated to research and education to advance understanding of the ocean and its interaction with the Earth system, and to communicating this understanding for the benefit of society.

MASTS provides the academic platform and knowledge for marine governance and commerce by helping to establish a Scottish strategy for marine science that will deliver increased value to the public from its investments. These investments are being made in themes that cover regions from the coasts to the deep oceans and subjects from the effects of global change to fisheries and aquaculture. They also enhance our ability to deliver first class training in marine science to support continuity of excellent research talent in Scotland. This venture is delivering a new approach to shared sovereignty and a shift away from a system involving competition between a large number of small research centres to one where there is strong strategic collaboration.
National Wildlife Federation is a non-profit conservation organization that works to protect wildlife and connect people with nature.
