The Ocean Alliance is dedicated to the conservation of whales and their ocean environment through research and education.
The Ocean Alliance encompasses The Whale Conservation Institute and the Voyage of the Odyssey.
The Whale Conservation Institute (WCI) was founded in 1971 by Roger Payne. Dr. Payne has conducted research on whales in all the oceans of the world, and for the past three decades has been an eloquent spokesman for whales and their welfare.
Voyage of the Odyssey
The Voyage of the Odyssey is the recently completed world-wide, five and a half year research expedition to study the health of the world's oceans.
The world's whales have not been saved. Among the many threats they face, the problem of ocean pollution is becoming the most serious. OA is uniquely positioned to meet this objective.
