Blue Ventures is a science-led social enterprise that works with coastal communities to develop transformative approaches for nurturing and sustaining locally led marine conservation.
We work in places where the ocean is vital to local people, cultures and economies, and where there is a fundamental need to support human development.
Over the last decade our models have guided national fisheries policy and been replicated by communities, NGOs, businesses, donors and government agencies along thousands of kilometres of coastline.
We have created the largest locally managed marine protected areas in the Indian Ocean, catalysed a sea change in community-led fisheries management, established sustainable aquaculture and ecotourism businesses, and developed new approaches to financing and incentivising marine conservation.
So far our work has impacted the lives of more than 200,000 of the world’s poorest coastal people.
Join us in driving the adoption of our community based conservation models by making a donation to our field-based innovations across the tropical developing world. By donating to our marine innovation lab you will become part of an exclusive group who are closely involved with our work.
