Who are we?

Hakai Magazine is the only journalism outlet to focus entirely on the science and societies of the world’s oceans and coastlines. Founded in 2015 in Victoria, British Columbia, we have more than 300,000 monthly readers from across the globe. We’ve won major journalism awards and brought attention to issues that matter: problems such as marine wildlife trafficking and the perils of deep-sea mining; and solutions, from the use of traditional knowledge to restore habitats to communities banding together to fight plastic pollution.
