Kevin Augarten and Jeff Larson from Ocean Defenders Alliance

Ocean Defenders Alliance works to clean and protect    marine ecosystems through documentation, education, and meaningful action. Working with affected communities, we focus primarily on the reduction and removal of manmade debris which poses serious threats to ocean wildlife and habitats. ODA envisions a world in which we educate communities and involve them in solutions that help  ensure marine ecosystems can exist free from harm caused by human debris. Without abandoned fishing gear, trash, and improperly sunken vessels damaging their habitat,  marine flora and fauna will be able to thrive.
