The Blue Marine Foundation exists to combat over-fishing and the destruction of biodiversity – arguably the largest problem facing the world’s oceans – by delivering practical conservation solutions, including the creation of large-scale marine reserves.
BLUE’s aim is to put 10% of the world’s oceans under protection by 2020 and 30% by 2030. We also work to establish sustainable fisheries so fish stocks can begin to recover.
‘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.’ Jonathon Porritt, co-founder, Forum for the Future
