Blue Ventures Conservation - Rebuilding fisheries with coastal communities

Blue Ventures develops locally-led approaches to marine management that benefit people and nature alike.

By listening and responding to basic needs, we design our models to 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.

Blue Ventures is currently seeking new members of our board of trustees.

Role of the Board of Trustees

Blue Ventures’ Board of Trustees is the highest level governance and decision making authority within Blue Ventures. Trustees ensure that the charity has a clear strategy, and that its work and goals are in line with the charity’s vision. Our trustees’ role is to be ‘guardians of purpose’, making sure that all decisions put the needs of the mission and our beneficiaries first. Trustees also safeguard our assets – both physical assets, including property, and intangible ones, such as our reputation. They make sure these are used well and that the charity is run sustainably.
