We love everything about the ocean, help us protect it!
Our mission is to protect marine mammals in the Gulf of Maine through education, research and conservation. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Portsmouth, NH. Blue Ocean Society was founded by two whale watch naturalists, Jen Kennedy and Dianna Schulte, who were frustrated with the lack of translation of open ocean research into information that could be used by the public. We strive to learn more about the Gulf of Maine, and particularly an important habitat called Jeffreys Ledge, and then bring our research to the public through a variety of outreach programs. We hope by sharing information with the public and resource managers, more people will be inspired to learn more about the marine environment and help protect it.
We both have lost dogs to this growing epidemic (a rendering of one of them is our mascot), lets find a cure!

Funds are used in eliminating cancer as a major health problem in dogs by promoting the scientific efforts of cancer researchers to encourage and provide grant support for basic, pre-clinical and clinical research in high impact and innovative cancer research. We are working to save lives though finding cures, better treatments, more accurate cost effective diagnostic methods in dealing with cancer and diminishing dogs suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.
