Our Funding

Contrary to what the impact of our actions suggests, we operate on a very limited budget, which we devote entirely to our research programs and subsequent actions. Our reputation is based on our effectiveness. Our financial support mostly relies on word of mouth and the mobilization of our amazing network of supporters. This allows us to guarantee that 100% of your donations are allocated to action. From 2017 onwards, financial accounting is provided by Undae Conseils, based in Nantes, and the Statutory Auditor is HLP Audits in Nantes.

“It is increasingly difficult to ignore the fact that the ocean is relentlessly losing its extraordinary resources because it is overexploited, polluted and impacted by climate change. In this worrying context, BLOOM is pursuing its flagship issue: destructive fishing methods and subsidies to the fishing industry, by conducting research programmes, legislative fieldwork, and actions aimed at the general public, political decision-makers and economic actors.”

Claire Nouvian, founder of BLOOM
