These Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life programs are transforming cutting-edge conservation and research efforts into real-world solutions to help reduce human threats to Earth’s oceans in a changing climate.
Wildlife and Ocean Health
Our researchers work to understand, quantify, and reduce the consequences of human activities on the health of marine species and ecosystems.
Kraus Marine Mammal Conservation Program
Marine mammals are under threat in the ocean like never before, creating multiple challenges for species and ecosystem survival.
Marine Conservation Leadership Program
We are building and supporting a new generation of conservation leaders with 21st century skills.
Marine Conservation Action Fund (MCAF)
MCAF provides conservation leaders in developing nations with the financial and professional support they need to be successful.
Fisheries Science and Emerging Technologies Program (FSET)
Our scientists are using cutting-edge technology to investigate critical fisheries issues.
We are connecting a global network of stakeholders to improve the application of research and reduce bycatch worldwide.
With a vision for a vibrant and vital ocean for future generations, the New England Aquarium (NEAq) promotes sustainable and responsible growth of the “blue economy”.
Spatial Ecology, Mapping, and Assessment Program (EcoMap)
EcoMap researchers collect and analyze data to develop solutions that reduce risks to marine species from human activities and climate change.
