Our Seas Our Future

Our Seas Our Future is a 100% volunteer-run and non-profit marine conservation organisation based in Aotearoa/New Zealand. It was established in 2011.


With the main areas of operation in Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington, Hawke’s Bay, and Auckland, OSOF operates based on a volunteer-driven model, focusing on coastal and marine conservation, environmental education, and community engagement projects.


The idea that gave rise to the OSOF initiative still drives us today; we are all stewards of our marine environment, and how we treat our environment now will shape the world we are living in tomorrow; the health of our seas is intertwined with our future.



Our Seas Our Future (OSOF) aims to protect New Zealand’s coastal and marine ecosystems through advocacy, education, and environmental stewardship, ensuring that they are managed sustainably and protected for future generations.
