YoOceans! is dedicated to improving the lives of marine mammals in both captivity and the wild. One of the ways we accomplish this by engaging our participants through a framework of educational materials focusing on animal welfare and conservation, as well as current events for classrooms, academic presentations for universities, community groups and student led organizations. Our mission is to encourage both advocacy and education, so that we can create a large community of individuals devoted to promoting better lives for both marine mammals in captivity and the wild.
