Make your voice heard by contacting us or participating in any of our social networking sites: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. Together our efforts are making the difference needed so that our ocean’s many wonderful species (including us) will be able to thrive and survive.
MarineBio is an ever-evolving tribute to all ocean life that has been a central source online for the latest information concerning marine life and its biology, and especially its conservation, since 1998.
Sharing the wonder of marine life is what started MarineBio, so in this section we explore information on the science, biology, taxonomy, morphology, etc. of the fascinating marine life that inhabits our ocean.
Hear from leading scientists and advocates about the science involved in Marine Conservation Biology and discover what organizations around the world are also doing in the fight to save our ocean, its life and ultimately ourselves.
For current and future students of marine science, we provide updated links to resources, academic institutions, and marine labs offering curricula in the various disciplines related to the study of the ocean and marine life.
MarineBio’s marine science quizzes, MarineBio kids, interesting ocean facts, ocean mysteries, scuba diving, and submarines! Check out our expedition photo galleries and great videos of marine life such as the flamboyant cuttlefishes, scorpionfishes, sea slugs and the rare white V octopus.
Professionals in the marine sciences are an important part of the MarineBio community. MarineBio’s resources provide a convenient clearinghouse of information and links to academic resources including: Relevant journals ~ Online research tools (databases etc.) ~ Worldwide marine conservation organizations ~ Aquariums around the world ~ Marine Life News Feeds…
This evolving section explores the science of what is known about our ocean and basically provides an online introduction to marine biology and ocean science. Here we begin the journey into this planet’s largest living space — The Ocean.
Our ocean is home to some of the most amazing creatures on earth, ~80% of the world’s biodiversity lives in the sea and there is still so much to be discovered. At least 100 million unnamed species live on the ocean floor alone.
The ocean surrounds us all, yet more is known about the Moon and Mars. We are just now beginning to understand the ocean and with that understanding comes the increasing realization that the ocean is in deep trouble.
The ocean is our earth’s greatest natural resource. It is the place of origin for most life forms. Millions of people rely on the ocean for survival.
Twelve million fishermen operate three million vessels landing around 90 million tons of fish each year, providing work for over 200 million people worldwide. More than 60% of the global population lives within 60 km of a coast. The ocean provides over 50% of our oxygen and the rain itself. The ocean buffers the weather, helps regulate global temperature and manages vast amounts of our pollutants. More than 2 billion tons of carbon dioxide are absorbed by the ocean every year….
Help Protect & Restore Ocean Life
Help us protect and restore marine life by supporting our various online community-centered marine conservation projects that are effectively sharing the wonders of the ocean with millions each year around the world, raising a balanced awareness of the increasingly troubling and often very complex marine conservation issues that affect marine life and ourselves directly, providing support to marine conservation groups on the frontlines that are making real differences today, and the scientists, teachers and students involved in the marine life sciences.
With your support, most marine life and their ocean habitats can be protected, if not restored to their former natural levels of biodiversity. We sincerely thank our thousands of members, donors and sponsors, who have decided to get involved and support the MarineBio Conservation Society.
