Our Mission

Committed to the understanding, viability and protection of our local marine environment through conservation, research and environmental stewardship

Our Vision

MORAES offers a streamlined path to get involved and STAY involved in the local marine science community through applied research/publishing, volunteering and education outreach. We want to tackle local environmental issues with innovative research and conservation techniques. Through grant funding, donations, and local assistance, we aim to provide internship opportunities, research experience, and volunteer exposure to assist with habitat restorations, beach cleanups, assorted data collection, sea turtle monitoring, cetacean research, and more!


The MORAES team is made up of very passionate and dedicated board members, interns, and incredible volunteers.
