The Ocean Azores Foundation was created with the aim of increasing protections for cetaceans in the region of the Azores archipelago, and ensuring their long term survival. 

The foundation aims to invest resources in selected community projects that will help drive lasting social and environmental change, focusing on the protection of the waters that surround the Azores archipelago.

The foundation focusses on multi-year partnerships and providing funding for organisations and projects that promote marine conservation, reduction of plastics, and related ocean education and research.
