Partner Spotlight

Blue Marine Foundation

Founded as a result of the popular success of the 2009 film, The End of the Line, based on Charles Clover’s book of that name, the Foundation took its first step by enabling the creation of the largest no-take marine reserve in the world, when the then British government was facing acute spending restraints. Since then it has enabled the creation of an 1100 sq. km reserve in Turneffe Atoll, Belize; funded a joint project between fishermen and conservationists in Lyme Bay on England’s south coast; and lobbied for the creation of marine reserves around the UK Overseas Territories, something that found its way into the 2015 Conservative party manifesto as the “blue belts” commitment.
