Dear Vnykkppbvnh,

Times like these teach us that we need to rethink our relationship with nature. We need to explore it and live in harmony with it instead of destroying and dominating it. It is the only way we can ensure our own survival.

This month, we’ve got news which proves that the fight to protect our wonderful planet isn’t lost:

●    We've received more than 15,000 signatures, from every continent, for our petition to shut down wildlife markets and protect humans from new diseases and wild populations from eradication.
●    In Senegal, the government has refused licenses for 52 new foreign fishing vessels, sending a clear signal against unsustainable fishing and for the protection of our oceans.
●    Every day, our passionate Ocean Defenders give everything to protect our seas. On World Oceans Day, we introduced you to some of them. 

We will never stop defending our natural world and giving a voice to those whose needs are too often overlooked.

Thank you for your support,
Steve Trent
EJF Executive Director

Over 15,000 signatures to close wildlife markets

Over 15,000 people have come together around the world to call for an end to cruel and dangerous wildlife markets over the last few weeks. This is a movement which is growing amazingly quickly, thanks to you!

The campaign is far from over! Now it’s time to build an even bigger movement together. We are crowdfunding to raise the funds we need to build grassroots movements around the world, create a global call for change and shut down these horrific markets once and for all:

Senegal acts to protect its fisheries. Will Ghana do the same?

Victory for sustainable fisheries! The Minister of Fisheries in Senegal has rejected licensing requests for 52 new industrial fishing vessels, which would have threatened Senegalese food security and livelihoods by devastating fish populations. 

Global attention is now on Ghana - where three new Chinese trawlers have been registered to the Ghanaian flag and are awaiting licensing, despite a moratorium on new vessels due to extreme over-capacity in the existing fleet.

Senegal made the right choice in declining these licenses and protecting its fisheries, as well as the livelihoods and food security of its coastal communities. Hopefully the Ghanaian government will follow suit.

Saving the seas: EJF’s Ocean Defenders

Our oceans provide millions with food and livelihoods, and offer a safe haven for marine wildlife. The future of people and the planet depends on them. This is why protecting our seas is one of our key missions.

Here are the portraits of three of our very own #OceanDefenders in Ghana, Liberia and Thailand, who work tirelessly to protect our blue planet:
