Get Inspired

We’re not just a business, we are a group of individuals passionate about sustainable living and doing our best to reduce our environmental impact. Although we love our business, we understand that we must love our planet first. As a Southern California company, located in the coastal town of Oceanside, all of us at Terralite have developed a close relationship with the ocean. Her waters nourish our senses, feed our friends and families, provide sanctuary and solace, and consistently give us more than we could ever give her.  We feel it is our duty to honor our oceans and do what we can to protect her and all the creatures that depend on her.

We invite you to join us in being a steward for our environment by getting to know these local organizations who are dedicated to our oceans. Follow them, support them, and let their journey inspire you in endless ways.

The Ocean Cleanup

The Ocean Cleanup is a nonprofit engineering environmental organization based in the Netherlands, that develops technology to extract plastic pollution from the oceans and intercept it in rivers before it can reach the ocean. Founded in 2013 by then 19 year old Boyan Slat, The Ocean Cleanup has so far removed over 1,029,000 pounds of trash from their ocean and river programs combined. With continued support, The Ocean Cleanup projects to be able to remove 90% of floating ocean plastic by 2040. They are currently the largest cleanup project in history.

National Marine Mammal Foundation

The NMMF has a mission to improve and protect life for marine mammals, humans, and our shared oceans through science, service, and education.

Located in San Diego, this organization’s mission is to improve and protect life for marine mammals, humans, and our shared oceans through science, service, and education.


NMMF researchers, animal care experts and scientists advance the world’s knowledge in marine mammal biology and medicine. We study how human-made sound and changes to the environment impact marine mammals.


We are proud to protect the health and well-being of the U.S. Navy’s marine mammals. This important work allows the NMMF team to serve and protect wild marine mammal populations and inform critical conservation approaches.


Our team strives to foster the next generation of scientists and ocean ambassadors. As part of our commitment to education, we take our message of conservation and research to schools, organizations, and public events nationwide.

Sea Shepherd

Sea Shepherd is an international, non-profit marine conservation organization that engages in direct action campaigns to defend wildlife, and conserve and protect the world’s ocean from illegal exploitation and environmental destruction.

Sea Shepherd is powered by a crew of skilled and passionate volunteers, all dedicated to protecting and saving ocean wildlife and upholding International Conservation Law. These brave and badass group of earth warriors work to fight illegal fishing activities and habitat destruction. They do this by using direct action to defend marine life on the high seas and work with national authorities to tackle illegal fishing in sovereign waters.

The Marine Mammal Center

The Marine Mammal Center advances global ocean conservation through rescue and rehabilitation, scientific research, and education.

Animal Care:

Since 1975, we’ve rescued more than 24,000 marine mammals along 600 miles of California coastline and the Big Island of Hawaii. With a volunteer force numbering more than 1,300 and the support of a concerned public, the Center is able to respond to marine mammals in distress. Sick and injured animals are treated and rehabilitated at our state-of-the-art veterinary facilities where we care for our patients until they can be released back to their ocean home.


Our veterinary experts develop new clinical techniques to improve marine mammal rehabilitation and care, and investigate the reasons why marine mammals strand and how these factors are connected to ecosystem and human health. Our scientists also investigate how marine mammals use and interact with their ocean environment to better understand and protect them from many threats.


Our innovative school and public education programs build a sense of responsibility through a connection to marine mammals and the marine environment, inspiring future ocean stewards and promoting action to protect the ocean. Each year, these education programs and hands-on trainings reach more than 100,000 children and adults, supporting the next generation of informed scientists and engaged citizens who will care for and ensure the health of our ocean and environment.
