Seacology exists to preserve the environments and cultures of islands worldwide.

Our approach is straightforward. Seacology funds island community needs identified by local people as urgent, such as a school, health clinic, or solar-powered generator. In exchange, the island community agrees to establish and maintain a marine or terrestrial reserve.

Since 1991, our cost-effective work has led to over 250 projects on islands in 56 countries around the world, and protected close to 1.5 million acres of coral reef, mangrove, rainforest, and other vulnerable island ecosystems.

In 2015, the organization launched its largest and most ambitious project to date, working with Sri Lanka-based Sudeesa to protect all of that country's mangrove habitats.

Seacology UK (Registered charity #1132076) is proud to be part of the global Seacology network.
