Blue Marine is filling a niche in the NGO world, enabling marine conservation to happen fast and effectively. What differentiates Blue Marine is that we are well connected and determined; we seize opportunities as they arise and get things done. We forge new partnerships and challenge the status quo.
Blue Marine works using a combination of top-down intervention to improve governance of our seas and bottom-up project delivery to help local communities who are at the front line of ocean conservation.
Our key strategic interventions are as follows:

SECURED COMMITMENTS TO PROTECT OVER 4 MILLION SQUARE

Overfishing impacts the ocean’s biodiversity and ability to store carbon.
Our ocean is in crisis. Marine life is under threat from climate change, acidification, pollution and invasive species. But these threats are compounded by overfishing, which strips the ocean of life, and so reduces its capacity to produce oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide and regulate the climate. It’s estimated that almost 94% of commercial fish stocks are fully or overexploited and 90% of large, predatory fish are gone. ​
Overfishing therefore represents a major threat for the food security of millions and could have devastating consequences for Earth’s climate.
H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco
“It is through strong institutional partnerships, such as the one between my Foundation and the Blue Marine Foundation that we can fight against climate change and manage our natural resources responsibly.”
Jonathon Porritt CBE
“We desperately need more big solutions to the continuing crisis in the world’s oceans and we need them developed and deployed urgently. That’s what BLUE exists to do”
