We need your help. There is just no other way to put it.

MarAlliance is not just about shark and ocean conservation efforts. We depend on the courageous fishers we work with, and their families, who bravely speak up against unsustainable practices and push for healthier seas.

These heroes are key to ensuring a future for our fish populations. During this Covid pandemic fishers are not allowed to go out to sea to fish sustainably and feed their families. They need your help. During this #GivingTuesdayNow, please donate at https://maralliance.org/donate/ and give back to support these coastal families, show them that they are not alone in their fight to keep our seas healthy.

- Because of MarAlliance, Nelson, a fishing-boat captain, is embracing the idea of sustainable fishing without nets in Belize.

- Because of MarAlliance, Exson refuses to fish sharks in Honduras anymore and trains other fishers in monitoring techniques and sustainable fishing in Central America.

- Because of MarAlliance, Ze Luis no longer targets sharks and advocates for sustainable fishing measures, even helping to create the first fisher association in Boavista, Cabo Verde.

For as little as $88 you can feed and support their family for a week.

Our priority now is to protect these leaders and their families. Without them there is no MarAlliance.

Please be a Guardian of the Seas today and entreat your colleagues, friends and family to support as well. Any and all amounts are appreciated and 100% of your gift will go to support these coastal families over the next few critical months. To donate: https://maralliance.org/donate/

Thank you for being a part of the MarAlliance Family.

With deep gratitude from me and our team at MarAlliance,

Rachel Graham
