Ocean Conservation Research promotes and supports marine biological and technological research based on conservation priorities. The majority of ocean research is sponsored by ???resource extraction??? and military interests ??? framed in the context of maximizing the effectiveness of their mission. Given the precarious state of ocean health, we can no longer afford to drive research efforts exclusively under the rubric of "resource extraction," "maximum sustainable yield" and "recoverable thresholds," rather we need research focused on conservation priorities and practices which promote recovery and long term viability of the sea. Ocean Conservation Research is initially focused on understanding the scope of, and exploring solutions to the growing problem of human generated noise pollution and its impact on marine animals.
