Bold, innovative and on a mission, Blue Marine Foundation plays a monumental role in ocean conservation.
A terrifying combination of climate change, pollution and overfishing are having catastrophic consequences for marine life and the ocean's ability to capture carbon. But Blue Marine Foundation are adamant - this problem is solvable.
The organisation is unique because it comes at the issue from all angles. By working top-down with governments, they're able to improve the governance of our seas and secure marine protected areas. And by working bottom-up with fisher communities, they've been able to develop and implement models for sustainable fishing practices.
Why we think they're great
These folks are unrelenting and that's how they get things done. By fronting legal challenges, through worldwide education initiatives and through ground-breaking research projects, they're restoring our ocean to health.
To date, they've set up 21 project locations around the world and have secured commitments to protect over 4 million square kilometres of ocean. Next up on their to-do list? To see at least 30% of the world's ocean under effective protection by 2030 and the other 70% managed in a responsible way.
