We support the various activities of the Society: 1) to build a community of Tonga Ocean Guardians who learn traditional navigation and sailing and who learn to embrace the Tongan cultural values of the love for the ocean, ocean life, love for the islands and islanders. 2) to support traditional canoe-builders to continue their craft and traditions. 3) to raise awareness about the devastating impact of trash and plastic pollution in their oceans and islands and organize community clean up days.
