Be a scientist! Report animals you sight while out on the water.

Support ocean conservation with Ocean Alert! When you spot a whale, shark, turtle, or other marine animal, Ocean Alert lets you report that information to a network of resource managers, scientists, and the public. These sightings may be used in real time to alert others in the area to slow down or avoid a protected species; they will also be used by scientists to better understand where and when animals occur. All of this information makes it possible for people to use the ocean while helping to avoid harm to the marine life that lives there.

Ocean Alert also shows the boundaries of US National Marine Sanctuaries as well as other Federal and State areas such as National Parks, Marine Estuarine Research Reserves, and more - as well as NOAA nautical charts. Click on any area to learn more about allowed and restricted activities.

Members of effort survey projects can use the built-in Spotter effort mode to carry out custom surveys.
