Ocean Strike Team

Ocean Strike Team is a non-profit organization that teaches ocean lovers how to protect the ocean through volunteerism and citizen science. Our goal is to introduce people to conservation work and get them excited about saving our oceans. We teach divers how to remove invasive lionfish, conduct non-invasive shark surveys, gather data on water quality, lead underwater marine debris, beach cleanups, and other activities. We challange poeple to do something and not sit idly by while our prescious ocean is polluted and ravaged. We can make a difference, and it starts with you!

Wherever the ocean needs us, we send in a strike team of trained volunteers and citizen scientists to help.
