About us / Our partners / Oceanites


Oceanites, Inc. is a US-based, tax-exempt nonprofit organization that has been driving science-based conservation under the Antarctic Treaty for more than two decades. It represents the world’s only non-profit, publicly supported Antarctic research program.

Over the years, Oceanites has spurred successful efforts to establish both general guidance for all Antarctic visitors and a series of site-specific management guidelines. Oceanites draws public attention to climate change, penguins, and Antarctica through its annual State of Antarctic Penguins reports, which are compiled based on information on population size and population trends of Antarctica’s penguins.
