About the Ocean Team and Our Work
The ocean makes life on our planet possible. It delivers the oxygen we breathe, regulates our climate, and provides food for billions of people around the world. Experts agree that increasing threats such as overfishing and climate change are putting pressure on the ocean and damaging its ability to sustain ocean life, ultimately endangering our own well-being. Creating positive, lasting change will not be easy, but it is possible. For half a century, the Packard Foundation has made investments to expand our understanding of the ocean and has worked with partners to improve its long-term health. Today, we invest in organizations and communities working within six focal countries (U.S., Mexico, Chile, China, Japan, Indonesia) and through three global strategies, together designed to improve ocean sustainability and the well-being of people who depend on a healthy ocean.

With a $38M annual budget, the Ocean Team works in close partnership with the Foundation s Communications, Evaluation and Learning, and Organizational Effectiveness staff as well as other funders and re-granting organizations, such as Oceans 5. More information about our team and ocean grantmaking is available here: https://www.packard.org/what-we-fund/ocean/.
During the term of this fellowship, the Ocean Team will be jointly reviewing and learning from findings and recommendations produced through four independent evaluations. In addition, the team and you will be highly focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion, as this is a priority area of learning and action within the Foundation s Conservation & Science program. Together, we will be developing refreshed strategies that reflect our learning and adjust to new insights and evolving conditions. You will be deeply engaged with the Ocean Team, along with our internal and external partners, in this process.
