Citizen Science For Ocean Health

A Massachusetts based nonprofit, the Ocean River Institute (ORI) was established to "... lend a hand to environmental organizations...in specific, meaningful ways. The Ocean River Institute serves as a link between people who want to help and organizations that need their help," explains the website.

A recent Blue Frontier newsletter writes, "...ORI with its 3 person staff works like a blue SWAT team facilitating grassroots efforts, aiding local groups by providing them needed expertise, services, resources, and information around Ecosystem-based ocean management, river science, environmental justice and projects in Florida, the British Virgin Islands and its home state of Massachusetts."
