The Ocean Portal is Here!

June 24th, 2010 by Smithsonian Journeys

The Ocean Portal is here – a unique, interactive online experience that inspires awareness, understanding, and stewardship of the world’s Ocean, developed by the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History and more than 20 collaborating organizations.

Smithsonian’s Ocean Portal helps us all to ensure that the world’s Ocean is here for us to enjoy for years to come.



Click here to be among the first wave of visitors to the Portal, an experience which we hope will empower you to shape and share your personal Ocean experiences, knowledge, and perspectives. The Portal supports the Smithsonian’s mission to increase the public’s Ocean understanding and stewardship.

Whether you live near the Ocean or live far away, you can take positive actions to preserve and protect our world’s Ocean. There are opportunities to help posted throughout the Portal, as well as opportunities to share your feedback on the experience.

Thanks for diving in!

    Oceans are truly amazing and we need to do our part in trying to maintain their splendor. In our case, we started small, by making sure that we have a recycling program to save plastic from ending up in the oceans. Every little step counts. Join us.
