Ocean Alliance Policy and Financial Documents
Ocean Alliance, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Organization, was founded in 1971 by renowned biologist Dr. Roger Payne, Ocean Alliance strives to increase public awareness of the importance of whale and ocean health through research and public education. Led by Dr. Payne and CEO Dr. Iain Kerr, we work with our scientific partners to collect a broad spectrum of data on whales and ocean life. Ocean Alliance uses this data to advise educators, policy makers, and the general public on wise stewardship of the oceans to mitigate pollution, prevent the collapse of marine mammal populations, and promote ocean and human health.
We collect a broad spectrum of data on whales relating particularly to toxicology, bioacoustics, and genetics. From that data we and our scientific partners advise education and policy makers on wise stewardship of the oceans, to reduce pollution, to prevent the collapse of marine mammals, fish populations, and other sea life.
In efforts to maintain our transparency as a responsible non-profit organization, we offer the following documents which include:
