Beneath the Waves is a globally-active, registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization working to protect our oceans. Motivated by our mission – to conserve sharks and the habitats they occupy – we conduct cutting-edge scientific research and use our findings to inform environmental policy and educate the public.


We conduct timely scientific research aimed at generating solutions for pressing ocean conservation issues. Our primary cause is shark conservation, and we are currently engaged in several projects worldwide including studies on migration, habitat use, and physiology. We also tell powerful and inspiring stories through media and create calls to action with our environmental documentary series, “The Global Connection.”
