We rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities

Blue Ventures is a marine conservation organisation that puts people first. We support coastal fishers in remote and rural communities to rebuild fisheries, restore ocean life and build lasting pathways to prosperity.  Our work began two decades ago in Madagascar’s remote coastal communities and is growing globally.  Across a dozen countries, we’re partnering with traditional fishers and community organisations to design, scale, strengthen and sustain fisheries management and conservation at the community level.  We bring partners together in networks to advocate for reform, and share tools and best practices to support fishing communities across the globe.

Summary job description

Whether through photo stories, news articles, media releases, blogs, or social media campaigns, you’ll be proactive in telling our story, and championing the importance of human rights based approaches to ocean conservation.
