Our Work

The ocean needs our help, now more than ever. And the Perry Institute for Marine Science is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that does just that.

Working in The Bahamas and Caribbean, we restore coral reefs – the dazzling “rainforests of the sea” –  and replenish vital fisheries. We also revitalize coastal habitats like mangrove forests, and conduct research that shapes new Marine Protected Areas.

But we can't do this without you. Educating people and communities is a vital part of our work.
