Marine Watchdogs focuses on the health of the ocean and the food products that come from it. A member-based nonprofit action company, their mission includes research, education and active projects like seafloor cleanup events. They aim to engage the public and enable ways for people to get involved in ocean ecology via seabed survey and seafloor clean-ups. Their multiple activities include: conducting toxicology tests, alerting the public to contamination issues, conducting marine bio fieldtrips, providing educational resources, and running campaigns aimed at reducing single-use plastic waste and agricultural chemical run-off.
