The Ocean River Institute is dedicated to helping people and groups save marine life through collaborative stewardship and science.
Environmental groups that are small, local, regional and/or newly formed often find that they could benefit from outside help to achieve their goals. That’s where the Ocean River Institute comes in. We maintain a network of ORI Partners, connecting these organizations with resources and services to help them maximize their impact, expand their capacity, and weather unanticipated setbacks. For example, ORI’s role might be to quickly raise money to replace broken monitoring equipment for a river or coastal group. Or, for a group that lacks a website, we can set up a web page with information about an upcoming event. If your organization is interested in Partnering with ORI, please contact us.
We believe that many environmental issues can best be addressed by people taking action in their own communities and regions, not by large, national entities. But small, localized, or newly formed groups often need help to achieve their goals.

ORI Actions and Events offer opportunities to make a difference, and you can volunteer to be an ORI Steward.
The Ocean River Institute is first to practice environmental subsidiarity in collaboration with others, to assist groups closest to wildlife and natural areas, to educate more widely, and to advance ecosystem-based adaptive management with greater public participation.
