The Ocean Institute
The Ocean Institute Enhances Volunteer and Constituent Communications with the Help of Blackbaud® NetCommunity™
The Ocean Institute has become nationally known for its hands-on marine science, environmental education, and maritime history programs. More than 110,000 K–12 students and 8,000 teachers annually participate in the Institute’s 61 award-winning, immersion-style programs. To learn about oceanography, science, and California history, students voyage onto the ocean, study in labs, and live aboard tall ships or in the chaparral, where they can feel and taste the salty sea spray, sort through live specimens, observe migrating whales, collect scientific data, and investigate the culture and world around them.
