    Can anyone recommend a good charity with a strong ocean focus? Ideally, I'm looking for one that "gets its hands dirty" actively doing stuff: coral restoration, cleaning beaches, buying land for new marine sanctuaries, providing medical care for injured sea creatures . . . rather than one that just lobbies and protests. Any suggestions?

    Hmm . . .

    Interesting suggestions, but not quite what I'm looking for. Do you have any suggestions for groups that . . . oh, care for injured sea turtles/dolphins/manta rays/etc, or clean up beaches, or repairs damage to reefs, or does the whole "land trust" thing, buying land for marine sanctuaries . . .? Protests and education have their place, but I'm looking for someone trying to make more immediate/tangible gains.
