Created in 2021 by Caroline & Ali Bullock, The Ocean Azores foundation has been established to formalise community involvement programs and aggregate ocean based research and conservation projects based on all islands of the Azores. While it is currently a work in progress the aims are to give back to the community and environment that we now call home. Funding will come from sales of Baleia Gin, as well as guest donations, donations from the Solar Branco Eco Estate as well as events hosted on the grounds.
Projects under consideration are certifying the Azores as a Whale heritage Site through the World Cetacean Alliance, real-time whale and dolphin tracking with the ORCA Surveyor Network, Smart Ocean Planning with The Ocean Conservancy and research work with Oceana Europe.
Due to our current and anticipated future commitments in these areas, we do not accept any unsolicited requests.
