Rare inspires change, so people and nature thrive. Our culture is results-oriented and entrepreneurial, committed to working towards ambitious goals and creating measurable results.
It’s never been a better time to join the Rare team! Rare is growing and expanding our impact through a range of exciting programs, including Fish Forever – our global initiative to restore near-shore fisheries in the developing tropics. Demand for fish has pushed the oceans to their limits. Coastal communities sit at the intersection of society and ecology, directly dependent on healthy ecosystems to provide fish for food and income. We believe that empowering communities to protect and manage coastal waters, and directly benefit from responsible behaviors will abate and reverse a pending crisis. Delivering community, rights-based management systems for coastal fisheries, connecting managed access of fisheries with fully protected marine reserves, will result in transformative impact for both people and nature. We envision a future in which 100% of coastal fisheries are sustainably managed with networks of reserves replenishing and sustaining fishing areas to support vibrant, prosperous communities. Fish Forever will improve fishery productivity, profitability and sustainability while also boosting livelihoods, protecting habitats and enhancing coastal resilience to climate change.
