Removing plastic from the worlds most polluted oceans
OUR 2020 GOAL
Ocean Home is committed to setting massive goals and accomplishing them. With your help through donations or volunteering, we can expand our outreach and do more each year.
Plastic removed from the ocean
lbs per year
Ocean currents concentrate plastic in five areas in the world: the subtropical gyres, also known as the world’s "ocean garbage patches". Once in these patches, the plastic will not go away by itself. The challenge of cleaning up the gyres is the plastic pollution spreads across millions of square kilometers and travels in all directions. Covering this area using vessels and nets would take thousands of years and cost billions of dollars to complete. How can we use these ocean currents to our advantage?

WHAT WE DO
Whale Shark RESCUE is one of our primary initiatives.
Every day these magnificent animals are put in danger by the activities of thoughtless fishermen and boaters.
The Whale Sharks greatest enemy is without doubt humans. Dynamite fishing is devastating. Practiced in Asia it is responsible for more Whale Shark deaths than almost anything else.
Education of local fishermen and the public has already begun to see change
Many Whale Sharks get tangled in nets every year. This can cause great distress, pain and in some cases death.
Our foundation intends to set up a quick response group that are able to get to help facilitate the release of the Whale Shark as well as the education of local fishermen on what to do if this happens
WHALE SHARK STUDY
We want to be able to offer cutting edge research facilities for Marine Biologists and those dedicated to studying the migration, breeding and life cycle of the Whale Shark.
Our foundations' goal is the setup of premier research facilities right in the hub of Whale Shark territory around the world. Beginning with Belize we also bring Whale Shark experiences to the public in a safe non-intrusive manner that encourages public support and understanding for the Spiritual Shark

The Belize Whale Shark Foundation is committed to teaching people the importance and wonders of the sea and all that live in it, striving to be the figurehead in the worlds ocean rejuvenation projects.
Every donation counts! partner with us today and help the fight against ocean plastic waste. Your donations will go towards expenses to build, operate, and upkeep recycles plants in locations across the world. Each day volunteers will pick up thousands of pounds of ocean waste and bring it back to our recycling centers where the trash will then be manipulated into building blocks. Not only does your donation remove plastic from the ocean, but it also goes towards building houses for locals in those countries that need them.
Together we can make our world a better place!
