The aim of the Ocean Management Research Network is to create and share knowledge for the application of critical thinking and best practices to oceans management in Canada. The OMRN is interdisciplinary, with an initial focus on social science, providing a forum for researchers, managers, and policymakers to evaluate timely and innovative linkages, integrate lessons learned, transfer and share knowledge, and help create an expert core of ocean researchers. The OMRN facilitates value-added research, provides seed funding, and seeks to establish a long-term research agenda.
Since its formation in the late 1990s, The Ocean Project has grown from a handful of founding North American aquariums into the world's most extensive network for advancing ocean education and action, with nearly 1,000 Partner ZAMs, plus conservation and education organizations, ENGOs agencies, and institutions in all 50 U.S. states and 85 other countries.
Our Partners are the leading gatekeepers in providing the public with experiences that engage them, increase their understanding of science and conservation, and inspire them to take action at home and in their communities. Thus, we focus our resources on reaching and leveraging frontline ZAM staff, challenging them to more effectively communicate with their onsite and online visitors for conservation outcomes.
