About W.H.O.I. Gift Shop and Exhibit Center

Our purpose is to know the ocean.
- Susan Avery, WHOI President and Director
The ocean is a defining feature of our planet and crucial to life on Earth, yet it remains one of the planet’s last unexplored frontiers. For this reason, WHOI scientists and engineers are committed to understanding all facets of the ocean as well as its complex connections with Earth’s atmosphere, land, ice, seafloor, and life—including humanity.
