Emerald Sea Protection Society is a non-profit organization protecting sensitive marine ecosystems in British Columbia, Canada from the devastating effects of abandoned, lost and discarded fishing gear.

Our organization is self funded. We are able to do so much with the resources and expertise inside our group, but recovery of lost gear is a challenging, technical and expensive exercise. We spend every dollar donated on our projects, and we couldn’t do it without you. Please consider donating to help us keep the air tanks filled.
