About the Society
Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation educates the public about the marine environment through school and group presentations, presentations aboard local whale watch and sightseeing boats, tide pool excursions and beach cleanups, and providing a variety of educational materials.
BOCMC researches local marine life, particularly endangered marine mammals, through data collection aboard local whale watch vessels. They also collect data on marine pollution aboard vessels and during our beach cleanups. This data is available to the public and for schools to be used in classroom projects.
BOCMC is actively involved in marine conservation through our beach cleanup, Adopt-a-Beach programs, and coordination of the New Hampshire Coastal Cleanup.
Other conservation initiatives include conducting educational programs and beach cleanups, hosting internships and volunteer opportunities, keeping our members informed about threats to the Gulf of Maine and its marine life and gaining data on endangered species to work toward their protection.
