Beginning in January 2020, Funding Fish and Oceans 5 will merge to strengthen international marine philanthropy. The merger builds upon years of informal collaboration among the world’s two leading marine funders’ groups.
Donors to each organization will combine to form a joint Board of Advisors, while staff from Funding Fish will join the Oceans 5 team. Grantmaking priorities of the combined organization will be focused on projects to end overfishing, establish marine reserves and combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.
The organization will continue to prioritize policy-oriented objectives involving collaborative work. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact Tristram Lewis ([email protected]).
