ABOUT

Why 4ocean is partnering with One Ocean Diving

One Ocean Diving, Research & Conservation is a Hawai'i-based organization that funds crucial marine research and conservation initiatives while raising awareness about the importance of protecting sharks and other marine life.

Their One Ocean Diving Education Program is a science-based initiative that allows individuals to join professionally trained marine researchers in the water to swim with sharks while learning about the important role they play in the marine ecosystem and all the threats they face.

These exciting and immersive experiences help change people’s perception of sharks so they not only understand how important sharks are to the ocean’s health, but are also inspired and empowered to take action that will make a meaningful difference for sharks, the ocean, and our planet.

Marine entanglement surveys

One Ocean Diving and Conservation will use a portion of our funds to hire a divemaster to act as a program coordinator as they collect, record, report, and share entanglement data that can be used to coordinate cleanups in prime hammerhead shark habitats, marine life aggregation sites, and other high-risk areas around Oahu, Hawaii. We also plan to clean up other areas that might be shark nursery habitats and other significant locations around the island.

Additional funds will be allocated to the purchase of supplies the organization needs to conduct marine entanglement surveys and safely rescue entangled animals, including the removal of significant amounts of fishing line to help save them and prevent further entanglement of other marine life.

Together, we will help Oahu’s marine life recover from the damage caused by fishing gear and other types of debris that are currently polluting the ocean and threatening crucial marine species like the hammerhead shark.
