7 Things to Know About the Oceanic Preservation Society
Posted on August 01 2017
We recently kicked off our corporate partnership with the Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS), and we couldn’t be more excited. We believe in the miraculous healing properties of the ocean, and their hard work to protect our environment perfectly aligns with our philosophies. They are passionate about protecting the ocean, endangered species, and saving our planet – and they want every member of the global community to do their part.
Here are 7 things you need to know about the OPS:
- Their mission is to expose complex environmental issues and promote advocacy through the use of film, photography, social media, and collaboration.
- The OPS is committed to sustainability and the preservation of our oceans and the planet.
- They won an Oscar for Best Documentary Feature in 2009 for their film The Cove, which analyzes and questions dolphin hunting practices in Japan.
- We’re often kept in the dark about serious threats to wildlife and our environment, and the OPS shines a light and directs their lens on these issue. They make it their quest to give a voice to the voiceless.
- To promote their second documentary Racing Extinction, which focuses on the mass extinction of species, disappearance of coral reefs, and the rise of toxins in the ocean, they projected clips of endangered animals on the Empire State Building in New York City.
- They believe in responsible stewardship for our planet, and encourage the global community to create a movement and take action. We can all #StartWith1Thing.
