We began by enabling the creation of the world's largest marine reserve, around the Chagos Archipelago in the Indian Ocean. BLUE now aims to unlock more of the ocean's conservation value by buying back assets theoretically in common ownership, but in practice being exploited by vested interests, and finding new ways of managing them. We were set up to:
Create new partnership opportunities for the sea, working with the private sector to raise critical funds for marine conservation.
Work with governments to construct the right legislative framework for marine conservation and make the establishment of marine reserves financially viable.
Help marine NGOs and scientists in their conservation efforts, work with local stakeholders, and translate what they do into measurable benefits for philanthropists, inspirational stories for the general public and effective CSR programmes for the corporate sector.
The need for effective marine conservation is global and BLUE is strategically positioned to do this in the UK, the UK Overseas Territories and internationally.
