The Forest and Sea Fund supports innovative forest and ocean conservation projects around the world. Through a partnership with CarboTax.org, a web-based application that allows people to offset their climate impact, individuals and businesses can donate a voluntary “carbon tax.” The amount of the donation is based on the specific impact measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). A portion of the donation goes directly to offset carbon impact through certified REDD+ credits provided by Natural Capital Partners with additional funds going to support Oceans 5 and Blue Ventures marine conservation efforts. CarboTax was launched in partnership with the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and National Geographic in support of the groundbreaking film on climate change, Before the Flood.

For every tonne of carbon offset, we give an equivalent amount to marine conservation and coastal restoration projects, which help regulate our climate and ensure the integrity of our biosphere. Proceeds go to support the work of Blue Ventures, an organization that develops locally-led approaches to marine protection that benefit people and nature alike. Blue Ventures works in places like Madagascar, Belize, and Timor-Leste where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies and is committed to advancing the rights of small-scale fishers throughout the coastal tropics.
