Education, Research and Innovation for Cleaner Oceans

We are working towards turning off the tap to plastics entering our waterways. Because if you cannot turn off the tap, how will we ever clean up the mess? Seabin Foundation is an ACNC registered not-for-profit.

An Ocean Health Online Course has been developed by Seabin Foundation in collaboration with other influential organisations globally, to empower proactive understanding and strategic action for the health of waterways, and the oceans. Our goal is to provide a resource for education that is accessible by anyone, anywhere, and thereby to progress humanities behaviour towards cleaner oceans, ambassadorship, mentorship programs, and ocean conservation career pathways.
