Next DCMC Meeting

Bringing together Washington DC's marine organizations and stakeholders

Since 2004, the IUCN Washington, D.C. Office and the IUCN Global Marine and Polar Programme have helped to build and support a network called the DC Marine Community (DCMC) — comprised primarily of Washington D.C. based organizations interested in marine issues.

DCMC serves as an informal and non-partisan platform for discussion and information-sharing within the Washington, DC marine arena and beyond. Its mission is to promote communication and build partnerships across the DC marine community and to identify and address gaps in the community’s work. The DCMC achieves this through regular discussion meetings supported by the community and through use of the established participant email list-serv as a forum to share information. The community consists of a diverse and growing group of participants, including non-governmental organizations (NGO’s), government agencies, foundations, bilateral and multilateral agencies, fellowship programs, marine industries and independent consultants and academia/students.

Currently, the DCMC has over 3300 participants.

Mission of the DCMC

  • Increasing communication within the DC marine community

  • Building partnerships

  • Identifying and working to address gaps in our field and in our work
