Our History

Our History

Our History

Founded in 1988 by Marlu Oliphant-West. She grew up in a family who did business in south America that imported and exported turtle leather and products, horrified at the devastation she saw during her upbringing she pledged to make a positive impact and offset the destruction caused by older generations. She raised her son, Juan Oliphant, at Chuns reef in the middle of the North Shore of Oahu and taught him and so many others how to help save the sea turtles from fishing line, nets, and debris. She rallied the local and international community to pass laws to protect sea turtles and has passed the responsibility onto Juan Oliphant and his Wife, Ocean Ramsey, who is most famous for her shark conservation efforts and founded water Inspired in 1997 before meeting Juan and Co-founding One Ocean Conservation together. Marlu is still one of the advisors for the program which continues to expand its efforts to more than just sea turtles and sharks, the next big focus inclusion is the coral reefs.
