The ocean produces half o​f the oxygen we breathe.​​ It fe​​eds the country, and provides jobs for over 1.8 million Filipinos.​ ​To support life, we must keep the oceans safe.​​​​​

Fueling the engine of life

Conservation International protects oceans and seas, and the Filipinos who depend upon them, through working with governments and local communities. We work to establish and expand marine protected areas alongside our partners, and provide the resources for local people to improve their fishing practices — to allow the ocean to sustain.
