“We are delighted to be one of the FOUR Foundation charities for 2015, and to work with FOUR contributors and readers to raise awareness of the need to choose sustainable seafood. 100% of funds raised by the FOUR Foundation for EJF this year will go directly to our cost efficient projects which combat illegal pirate fishing in West Africa, tackle slavery at sea in Asia, protect threatened species, including sharks, turtles, rays and dolphins internationally, and promote transparency and traceability in seafood supply chains globally.”
The FOUR Foundation supports EJF’s Oceans campaign. EJF runs field projects and works with communities, fishermen, scientists and governments in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire to expose and stop pirate fishing operations. Globally they work to change policies and practices that have enabled illegal ‘pirate’ fishing to flourish, and in doing so, protect the livelihoods and food security of some of the poorest people on our planet along with marine environments and precious wildlife like sharks and turtles.
