About Ocean Crusaders
Actions SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
There are a lot of organisations that talk protecting the oceans. We want to change people’s behaviour. Our goals are to…
We SHARE THE OCEANS
Ocean Crusaders was founded in 2010 after founder Ian Thomson was confronted with the reality of seeing turtles killed by ocean waste.
After a record breaking circumnavigation of Australia, Ian decided to take action – to create the foundation to clean-up waterways and beaches and raise awareness of the problem with the people who use the oceans as a playground.
The Foundation promotes the message to sailors through a successful racing program and sports marketing platform.
