Our Story

Conversation Ocean™ is an organization focused on spreading awareness about the ocean and its inhabitants through education, outreach, and cause-based apparel.

We partner with several different organizations who specialize in various types of ocean conservation and research. Some of our products support the conservation and research of manta rays and sea turtles, sharks, whales, and overall protection of our oceans.

Our products and education materials encourage people to get talking about the issues facing our ocean, and what they can do to help! We hope to raise awareness about the ocean and its inhabitants, and to inspire people from all degrees of life to take action and be a part of the solution.

We are ConVersation Ocean™, a company founded by women who want to Start A Conversation™ about ocean conservation. Yasmin Serajfar Co-founder

Yasmin is a wildlife biologist and artist. She obtained her Masters degree in Environmental Science from Drexel University and has spent the past couple years working as a wildlife biologist for the state of Florida. Her goal in life is to make a positive difference in the world, for all wildlife, and inspire others to do the same. This goal and her love for manta rays inspired her to start this organization. She believes art plays a powerful role in fostering environmental awareness and creates all our designs with that goal.
