The Outlaw Ocean Project

The Outlaw Ocean Project is a non-profit journalism organization that produces high-impact investigative stories about lawlessness at sea and the diversity of environmental, human rights, and labor abuses occurring offshore around the world.

In what began as an award-winning series in 2015 in The New York Times and a resulting book in 2019 by Ian Urbina, the ongoing non-profit reporting is now published as written and video stories in partnership with news outlets in dozens of countries globally.

For the sake of reaching a broader and a more diverse audience, the project also specializes in converting the journalism into other narrative forms such as music initiatives, educational games, podcast episodes, tv series, animation, and documentary films.
