About UrgentSeas This is our story

UrgentSeas is a not-for-profit organization based out of Toronto, ON Canada.
Co-founded by activists Phil Demers and Marketa Schusterova in 2023, our mission is to create a world where marine life thrives, animals swim free and our oceans are protected.

Through direct action and community engagement, our campaigns highlight the injustices endured by captive marine mammals and inspire positive resolutions.
Our published investigations have garnered 100s of millions of views on social media and generate global media headlines.

Where there’s a whale, there’s a way!
