Our Ocean. Our Planet. Our Future.

The ocean covers 70 percent of the globe. It gives us oxygen and food, and millions of jobs. It brings joy and shapes our climate and weather. The ocean is life, and it belongs to everyone. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is the world’s independent leader in ocean discovery, exploration, and education, working to understand and sustain one of humanity’s most precious common resources. Join us today for our ocean, our planet, and our future.
