Who We Are
Blue Earth Conservation unites world leading experts with conservation issues to find real world solutions. We work best in collaborative partnerships bringing our extensive network of connections together to actively address key issues.
Making A Difference
Invasive species threaten native ecosystems and the livelihoods that depend on them. We work extensively to address established invasions such as the lionfish as well as prevent new invasions through early detection and rapid response. Our research efforts focus on developing new tools and techniques for practical solutions.
Reefs and oceans in the Caribbean have suffered greatly due to natural and human caused disturbances. We work closely with partners to address these degradations and develop efforts to enhance and restore these ocean ecosystems.
Having led over 100 expeditions around the world, we realize that first hand knowledge and experience is the best way to engage the interested public and create stakeholders that support our ocean environment. We continue to educate and engage divers and non divers through conservation focused trips led by world leading experts.
