RESTORING HEALTHY OCEANS
In its almost ten year existence, BLUE has already achieved a huge amount of impactful ocean conservation, from the Maldives to the Tyrrhenian Sea, from the Indian Ocean to the Cyclades. BLUE’s aim is to put 10% of the world’s oceans under protection by 2020 and 30% by 2030. The charity is also working on establishing sustainable fisheries so that fish stocks can begin to recover. To read more about BLUE’s work, see their 2017 Review.
THE BLUE MARINE FOUNDATION
The Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE) is a UK-based charity. Established in 2010, BLUE aims to solve the crisis in the oceans by enabling the creation of marine reserves and providing innovative solutions to overfishing. Around 90% of global fish stocks are in fact fully or over-exploited and around 90% of large fish are gone. The consequences are far-reaching, not only for the future of food but also because healthy oceans absorb half the CO2 produced by human activity.
