Blue Nature Alliance is a collaboration of multiple organizations working toward the global conservation goal of protecting 30% of the world’s ocean by 2030. That’s an area twice the size of the continental United States.
The alliance recognizes that a ‘one-size fits all’ approach will not work, so they are working with Indigenous communities, scientists, and other partners to implement location-specific practices.
