Fighting Finning Hands On

$1,675 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 13 people in 59 months

The title 'Marine Reserve' is only as good as its level of monitoring and enforcement.  Unfortunately, the government is still failing miserably.  Chris Wade has put together his own volunteer crew, donated his life, and his boat, to take it upon himself to do what the government isn't.  

The first $1,000 we raised months ago was personally handed to Chris to help him get to Costa Rica while Skyler finished the film 'Great White Lies'.  Now we are seeking additional funds to get Skyler to the boat and document Chris's fight.

$400 should get Skyler there.  If we raise additional money it will be used to fly Luke Eller, a volunteer cameraman who helped film part of Great White Lies in Australia, there to also join the fight and help document.

Thank you Francesca and Justing. Looks like enough to get me there. Still looking for a bit more to get a camera/sound guy there.
Here's another video that helps explain the challenges of making a marine reserve and actual reserve.

On October 3rd I personally handed your donations to the crew of Sea Watch Shark Boat, which helped them with fuel costs.
Now I am attempting to join the crew to document the horrors of an unmonitored marine reserve and why ordinary citizens would feel compelled to do the job the government is failing to do.

Thank you everyone for your support. I will be presenting these funds to the captain this Friday at their send-off party so there are a few days left still to donate and spread the word

Thank you to all for your support and help. We have two crowd funders going and will be doing a couple more for specific projects along the way as well. This is a LONG TERM PROJECT and there is not a lot of help out there. We have the right to enforce fishing regulations in Cocos Island and governmental support for our direct action campaign. This is not a rogue operation. This is the real deal that will make a difference.
