What Our Clients Say

Blue Earth Consultants conducted a robust, in-depth review of country-scale fisheries governance and policy to help Oceana scope new opportunities. This work was performed on a highly ambitious timeline, and Blue Earth produced information that was extremely thorough and valuable to inform Oceana’s future efforts.

Andy Sharpless


Blue Earth Consultants’ mid-term evaluation of our Belize marine program was comprehensive and insightful. Their methodology was efficient and thoughtful, and the report provided was readable and concise. The lessons learned and forward-thinking recommendations gave us an objective critique and new ideas to build upon our success and further focus the strategy and objectives of our conservation efforts in Belize.

Marisla Foundation

Blue Earth Consultants has been an integral partner to Resources Legacy Fund Foundation in its support of marine protected area network implementation in California. Specifically, they have played strong role in advancing implementation by facilitating the coordination and planning of California’s natural resource agencies. Blue Earth has significantly improved collaboration across agencies and has helped to map out a plan and prioritize for the next five years.

Resources Legacy Fund

Blue Earth’s support on the Capacity-building for California Marine Protected Area (MPA) Collaboratives and the Small Grants Program administration and technical assistance really helped to move the bar for the Collaboratives’ abilities to handle bigger projects and larger sums of money. The facilitation support to develop a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the MPA Statewide Leadership Team and MPA Collaborative Network was critical to solidify and institutionalize our partnership and approach to effective MPA stewardship. We really appreciate Blue Earth’s professionalism and incredible project management and product development skills, but also their ability seek agreement from all the partners on the MOU, and support Collaboratives to achieve meaningful outcomes – it is no easy task! We are looking forward to continued partnership and many more successful projects to come.

Blue Earth Consultants has been working with the Saint Lucia National Conservation Fund for the last few years. They started working with us even before we became fully operational. They helped us develop all the necessary foundational documents, including our Strategic Plan and Sustainable Financing Plan. All these foundational and operational plans are standing in good stead for us as we partner with other conservation organizations and donors.
