Mission Statement / Philosophy

Fundamental values, culture, or movement that revolve around people's love and understanding of the ocean.

Sea•thos is based on the English word Ethos, that denotes guiding beliefs or ideals which characterize a community or ideology.

The Sea•thos Foundation exists to promote education and awareness of the human impact on the world's oceans.

The ocean covers over 70% of our planet, and we depend on it for survival. In the past 50 years, pollution, overexploitation and habitat degradation have pushed the world's oceans toward a state of collapse. These are MASSIVE problems facing humanity, yet there is little awareness and understanding about these issues in our society.

Sea•thos is committed to building a future with vibrant and healthy oceans. We seek to understand the problems through science, and with that knowledge, promote the responsible stewardship of precious resources for future generations.

Sea•thos was started because we love the ocean and we understand that it is dying. Sea•thos is a community with an intimate connection to the ocean and a passion about developing answers to the challenges now and in the future. We are activists, individuals, investors and companies who join with worthy organizations to promote our message and change the course for our most valuable resource, the ocean.

Sea•thos was created because we saw a need to give the ocean a voice. We are fiercely dedicated to giving society the means to make the right decisions. Time is critical, but it's not too late! We invite you to join our effort and become ambassadors for the ocean with us.
