  1. Bristol Bay, Alaska, USA

    Established: 2018

    The campaign in Bristol Bay, British Columbia, Canada documents through powerful imagery the aggregation of Kodiak brown bears within its rich marine estuaries to deepen the support of keeping the area as a natural resource and stop the proposal for Pebble Mine.

  1. Antarctica

    Established: January 2017 – July 2018

    At the mention of Antarctica, the picture that comes to mind is one of blizzard swept penguin colonies and frozen ice cliffs. The truth is Antarctica is a complex and diverse ecosystem that harbors a surprising density of wildlife and rivals even he richest habitats in the world.

  1. Great Barrier Reef, Australia

    Established: April 2024

    Guided by our passion for marine conservation and driven by the urgency of the climate crisis, we witness the stark reality of coral bleaching, a poignant reminder of the challenges facing the Great Barrier Reef. Yet, amidst the adversity, we find hope in the resilience of nature and the tireless efforts of local communities and scientists working to protect this precious ecosystem.

  1. Baja California Sur, Mexico

    Established: August 2022 – September 2022

    The two seas surrounding Baja California Sur are teeming with the symphony of life and are home to over one third of the world’s cetaceans. This is part of the reason why this marine ecosystem is such a unique and critical stronghold of ocean life.

    Explore Baja California

  1. California, USA

    Established: 2018 – 2022

    The campaign helped to end the use of brutal driftnets that have a 7:1 bycatch ratio, threatening sharks, whales, dolphins, turtles, sea lions, fish, and so many more. In 2018, inspired by our friend and conservation hero, the late Rob Stewart, we joined the fight alongside Sharkwater Foundation, Mercy for Animals, Turtle Island Restoration Network, and Sea Change Agency. Four years later in 2022, the US passed the Federal Drift Gillnet Legistration, effectively banning at the federal level the use of driftnets across the nation.

  1. Broughton Archipelago, Canada

    Established: 2017

    There is irrefutable evidence that open-net fish farming destroys wild fish stocks and pollutes coastal marine environments, impacting the entire food chain. The campaign supported to evict open-net Atlantic salmon farming operations in Broughton Archipelago. The initiative was led by the indigenous Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw First Nations peoples, whose traditional territories were being utilized illegally.

  1. Jardines de la Reina, Cuba

    Cuba’s Gardens of the Queen, Jardines De La Reina, is often called the crown jewel of the Caribbean. It also serves as Cuba’s first marine park and the largest no-take marine reserve in the Caribbean. This is one of the healthiest and most vibrant marine ecosystems in the world. Strictly protected since 1996, our expedition documented how the Gardens show us what’s possible when we commit to creating healthy and abundant ocean.

  1. Dominica

    Established: 2019

    The expedition focused on documenting a special pod of sperm whales, as they slept vertically in the water column, dove for up to a mile to feast on squid (deeper than a submarine could ever hope to reach), and used echolocation to create intricate maps of their vast underwater territories. One playful whale named “Ariel” from The Little Mermaid took a keen interest in joining our co-founders on their filming expedition.

  1. Isla Beata, Dominican Republic

    Established: February 2024

    SeaLegacy dives into the Caribbean Sea to document the Dominican Republic’s vital conservation initiative to establish two new marine protected areas.

    Explore Dominican Republic

  1. French Polynesia

    Established: September 2023

    Stay tuned as we share insights from our co-founders and partners. The expedition dives into the transformative conservation method of Rāhui, alongside spotlighting the extraordinary species, ecosystems, and communities of French Polynesia. There is also a special spotlight on their leading restoration edge that is breathing new life into our precious coral reefs!

    Explore Mexico

  2. Revillagigedo National Park, Mexico

    Established: 2023

    The expedition captured the bounty and diversity of life within Mexico’s Revillagigedo National Park. The footage proves that protecting our marine ecosystems is the solution to saving our ocean. Five years after its protection, the Revillagigedo Islands bound with a resurgence of life– welcoming back the region’s incredible native species, like the endangered giant manta ray. This region’s achievements act as a guiding light of hope for conservation worldwide.

  1. Auckland, New Zealand

    Established: February 2024 – April 2024

    SeaLegacy 1 returns to its homestead in Aotearoa (New Zealand) to document its natural beauty and the impact marine reserves have on the nation’s biodiversity when the community comes together to protect it.

  1. Banco Volcán, Panama

    Established: March 2023

    Panama substantially expanded the limits of the Banco Volcán Area of Managed Resources (Banco Volcán AMR) to further protect and steward important marine ecosystems, endangered flora and fauna, and important fishing resources found within Panama’s territorial waters in the Caribbean Sea. The expansion increases the size of the Banco Volcán AMR from approximately 14,200 sq km to over 90,000 sq km, with at least half of the total zone designated as a fully protected marine area where no extractive or environmentally damaging activities will be allowed.

  2. Guna Yala, Panama

    Established: January 2022

    Our co-founders and the SeaLegacy 1 explore Panama’s Guna Yala Comarca, where they became immersed in the community’s culture and wisdom. Together with the Guna Yala, they reflected on how valuing their people’s traditions and customers could help solve some of the challenges that the community is currently facing.

  1. South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands

    Established: 2006 – 2024

    South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands have what could be the single largest concentration of marine species in the world. By protecting the region with a South Atlantic Marine Wildlife Sanctuary, we will not only safeguard a wild, productive ecosystem, but we support our entire planet’s ability to regulate itself.

  1. Timor Leste

    The expedition, in partnership with Timor-Leste Maritime Boundary Office and Conservation International, focused on showcasing the importance of securing a maritime border within Indonesia, home to the most biodiverse coral reef left on Earth. This important conservation step would help to facilitate the vital protections for the region’s coral reef ecosystems and help the nation enter into a new blue ocean economy.
