Ocean Regeneration

Ocean regenerative practices are those that restore and regenerate the ocean ecosystem and simultaneously, sequester carbon for positive climate impact. We are partnering with two non-profit groups in this area.

SeaTrees is a project of the non-profit Sustainable Surf, an organization working with communities around the world to plant and protect “blue carbon” coastal ecosystems like mangrove and kelp forests, seagrass, and coral reefs. Learn more about SeaTrees here. Their projects do much more than sequester carbon. SeaTrees measures their impact with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, protecting and regenerating ecosystems that provide critical habitat for countless species, long-term employment for local communities, and defend those communities from storm surges and sea-level rise.

The ORP reconstructs oyster reefs in the Chesapeake Bay using recycled shells collected from local restaurants. They also monitor the sites for long-term recovery. Without intervention, oyster reefs will continue to decline over time due to negative effects of population growth, environmental change, harvesting practices, and disease.
