Ocean

The Ocean Program involves Oregonians in sustaining healthy land-sea-air connections in one of the world's richest coastal environments.

Learn about Oregon's abundant sea life and ocean ecosystems. Support our marine reserves and protected areas, coastal and offshore habitats, and ocean biodiversity.

Successful management of marine resources is based on an understanding of how shoreline and marine ecosystems, human residents and visitors interact. Learn how these systems work together and take part in research and conservation projects.
