Sustainable Fishing

Rare is an international conservation organization with a replicable model for community-led conservation. Rare’s mission is to conserve imperiled species and ecosystems around the world by inspiring people to care about and protect nature. Since the 1980s, Rare has specialized in training local conservation leaders to use outreach and advertising tactics to build awareness and support for conservation. Rare works at the community level to address human behaviors that threaten biodiversity. Rare has launched a cohort of Pride campaigns in the Gulf of California, the Galapagos, and the Mesoamerican Reef to accelerate the support and establishment of community-monitored Fisheries Replenishment Zones (FRZs). FRZs are scientifically selected areas where all fishing is suspended, either inside or outside of formally designated Marine Protected Areas. Read more here…
