AIDA’s Marine Program helps to keep coral reefs, coastal wetlands, and marine species healthy.

AIDA’s attorneys work to:

  • Strengthen and enforce legal protections.
  • Promote sustainable fishery management and recovery.
  • Build the capacity of governments and civil society to create and implement stronger legal protections for our coasts and oceans.
