Andrea Macdonald, founder ideaXme interviews George Duffield, co-founder Blue Marine Foundation (Blue).

Blue is a marine conservation charity. Its objectives are to ensure the protection of at least 30% of the ocean by 2030. They develop models of sustainable fishing proving that low-impact fishing benefits marine life, local fishers and communities. They restore marine habitats to revive and protect vulnerable and threatened species and to sequester carbon. Moreover, they tackle unsustainable fishing by highlighting poor practice and develop solutions that benefit the oceans and the local people whose livelihood's depend on it.

Mobilising both the public, government and the commercial sector to both understand the sea and change human behaviour are central to all of the above.

In this interview George Duffield talks to ideaXme about:

-The importance of the world's oceans to maintain the health of the planet and all living things on it.

-The threats and obstacles to protecting the world's oceans.

-The challenges of protecting the High Seas, making up the largest portion of the oceans and outside national legal jurisdictions. The UN's objective to create legislation to protect the High Seas by creating a Law of the Oceans in 2021.

-The End of the Line book and documentary that inspired him to co-found Blue Marine Foundation with Chris Gorrel Barnes and Charles Clover who wrote the book and narrated the documentary with Ted Danson.

-How Blue Marine Foundation has secured protection for 4 million square kilometres of ocean.

-He explains, that there's a place for science but we need action now! -Blue Marine Foundation's activities - from campaigning, lobbying and fundraising to creating sustainability models to support local communities whilst protecting the oceans.

-Specific examples where Blue Marine Foundation has directly helped to change policy and subsequent policing of new legislation created by that policy.

- Ascension Island, Chagos and Lyme Bay.

-The recent partnerships created with Barclays Bank and Shackleton clothing to support Blue Marine Foundation's ongoing initiatives to protect the world's ocean.

-Incentivising business, via an oceans fund, to get involved in protecting the world's oceans.

Blue comments: "BLUE is filling a niche in the NGO world, enabling marine conservation to happen fast and effectively. What differentiates BLUE is that we are well connected and determined; we seize opportunities as they arise and get things done. We forge new partnerships and challenge the status quo. BLUE works using a combination of top-down intervention to improve governance of our seas and bottom-up project delivery to help local communities who are at the front line of ocean conservation".
