Welcome to Olympic Coast
Who we are
To inspire the public to protect Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary through participation in and support of sanctuary programs, projects, and partnerships.
The creation of a knowledgeable constituency will result in financial support, conservation success and effective defense of the sanctuary.
In the near-term, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Foundation will focus on:
- Securing funding for public education, research and outreach programs focusing on marine debris and ocean acidification.
- Working closely with partners, Feiro Marine Life Center and NOAA’s Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, in a capital campaign for a new shared marine discovery center.
- Identifying funding options for vessel recapitalization to replace the R/V Tatoosh.
