Blue Ventures develops locally-led approaches to marine management that benefit people and nature alike.
By listening and responding to basic needs, we design models that catalyse and sustain marine conservation, unlocking the potential of coastal communities to manage their resources.
We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and are committed to advancing the rights of small-scale fishers throughout the coastal tropics.
Our work plays a critical role in rebuilding coastal fisheries, empowering communities with the means to safeguard their futures, reversing biodiversity loss, improving food security and building resilience to climate change.
