Abundant Marine

We’re protecting and restoring important marine resources — and the lives they support.

Oregon’s rich ocean resources have long supported livelihoods and communities. But important catches are declining and our estuary nurseries for fish are greatly diminished.

The Nature Conservancy offers real solutions. With your generous support, we:

  • Restore tidal wetlands.
  • Demonstrate the value of marine reserves.
  • Partner with fishermen to design sustainable practices.
  • Find locations where offshore industry can succeed while impacts to habitats and species are minimized.

Dive into our work and see how we’re working to ensure commerce and conservation are achieved in harmony on Oregon's coast.
