About / Contact

Blue Climate Solutions is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of conservation of the world’s oceans as a proactive and viable solution to the climate change challenge.

Blue Climate Solutions seeks to advance policy that promotes the roles coastal and ocean ecosystems play as natural carbon sinks, including the conservation of ecosystems such as seagrass meadows, mangrove swamps, and salt marshes. We also seek to promote marine science that further explore the roles natural ocean ecosystems play in mitigating the effect of climate change.

We define options for blue carbon as the conservation and restoration of coastal and marine ecosystems that restore natural carbon function.
