One donation, twice the impact!

The team at Ghost Fishing UK are poised to kick off their first post lock-down mission and there is lots happening!

The 22nd April is Earth Day and we are taking part in the Big Give Green Match Fund, in order to raise £5000 to recover ghost nets from over 170 reports we have received.

The nets are all recovered from underwater where they do the most harm by our highly trained team of volunteer divers.

The inaugural Green Match Fund campaign has been organised by the Big Give, the UK’s biggest online match funding platform in partnership with the Environmental Funders Network (EFN).

All public donations made to Ghost Fishing UK via the Big Give Green Match Fund during the week of the campaign 22nd -29th April will be doubled.

So, for every £1 you give, our champion the John Spedan Lewis Foundation will double it!

We need to raise £2,500 to reach our overall fundraising target of £5,000

If you are thinking of donating to us, please do so between 22nd -29th April and watch your money double!

” The work that this small team do is amazing, truly amazing…backed-up with powerful images and film. Ghost net diving is not easy – so the stories are not only about lost/abandoned nets, but the whole technical, adventurous, hazardous diving coupled with the circular economy / recycling works.” Paul Rose – Royal Geographical Society, Explorer, Broadcaster, National Geographic Pristine Seas, Ghost Fishing UK ambassador.
