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’re hoping to provide multiple employment opportunities and paid internships as well as create a workforce of committed volunteers within the area to assist with habitat restorations, cleanups, data collection, surveys, strandings, 24-hour watches, rehab, etc.


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