We’re a 501c3 with a focus on building positive impact that will help address ocean and water bodies pollution, climate change, environmental and social issues.

Led by its Chair, Ximena Caminos, The BlueLab Preservation Society uses art, science, culture and design as galvanizing channels for its sustainability program, developing responsive strategies and solutions with a clear core mission.

Our Mission

To educate and inspire global environmental action by directing funds raised through philanthropy towards innovative projects (domestic and worldwide), that seek to restore, reinforce, and protect coastal marine ecosystems, rivers, and lakes.

To support scientific research and non-profit initiatives that aim to protect the environment, promote responsible tourism development, implement sustainability programs, mitigate climate change, promote adaptation and resilience strategies, and the development of grass-roots environmental leadership initiatives.

To bridge the gap between philanthropists and the most promising environmental initiatives around the world. Particularly those that are in need of additional funding to scale-up projects that have been proven successfully at the local level. BlueLab works to supplement the budgets of programs that are otherwise dependent upon ever-shrinking governmental funding sources.

To activate and drive the spirit of venture capital fundraising towards projects whose return on investment is a healthier environment for future generations.

To promote the development and oversee the deployment of artist-designed artificial reefs, 100% environmentally friendly, meant to attract ecotourists in an effort to lessen the human impact on natural reefs, while also mitigating the footprint on sea level rise and beach erosion.

To support local, state, and national governments in the preservation of environmentally-sensitive areas, restoration of coral reef and mangrove habitats, management of fisheries, sustainability of ecotourism, and the cleanup of rivers, lakes and oceanic sources of pollution.

To create social opportunities that foster conversation between scientists, the tourism industry, engineers, artists, designers, NGO’s, philanthropists, and the local and global community that results in the interdisciplinary cross-pollination of ideas and the implementation of environmentally-sound projects and practices around the world.

To promote Miami as a global hub of coral science, artificial reef development, and future climate change adaptation.
