In 2019, Oceanic Society celebrates its 50th anniversary as America’s oldest non-profit organization dedicated to ocean conservation. As a pioneer in sustainable tourism, Oceanic Society has inspired countless people since our founding in 1969, and through scientific research, community engagement, and innovative programs like “Blue Habits” we continue to deepen the connections between people and nature and thereby build a more oceanic society.
To commemorate our golden anniversary, and to generate the attention, enthusiasm, and resources needed to confront the next 50 years of ocean conservation challenges, we are organizing a series of five exclusive expeditions in 2018–2019. These “Five for 50” expeditions will take our travelers to the front lines of ocean conservation and place them side-by-side with the eco-warriors who are working to save these important habitats. Our Five for 50 trips will support on-the-ground ocean conservation efforts in the places we visit, and will help us to develop a compelling narrative to engage people worldwide in the work of Oceanic Society and its partners.
