Benioff Ocean Initiative merges science and technology to improve ocean health. The initiative started in 2016 when Marc Benioff, co-CEO of Salesforce and ocean advocate, and his wife, Lynne Benioff, gifted $10 million to promote science-based ocean problem-solving at UC Santa Barbara - California. The mission of the Benioff Ocean Initiative is to leverage the power of science to solve ocean problems and inspire the replication of these successes. Our Director is Dr. Doug McCauley, a professor of ecology at UCSB.
