Rare focuses on bright spots in conservation — successful efforts worth emulating. Rare’s methodology takes locally-led solutions and repeats them in communities around the world. This replicable model has enabled Rare to turn local change into global impact. We partner with local organizations to run comprehensive marketing campaigns, called Pride campaigns, to inspire communities to take pride in their natural resources. Pride sparks and builds community support for the adoption of more sustainable behaviors.
Coastal Fisheries is currently our largest program: Global demand for fish has pushed the oceans to their limits. We believe that the adoption of rights-based fishery management systems will help turnaround the oceanic crisis, resulting in transformative impact for both people and nature. Our innovative coastal fisheries resource management solution (the bright spot) marries managed access of fisheries with marine reserves.
