Pete Bethune, founder of Earthrace Conservation

In his own words: "Conservation is uniting people in a similar way; however, the sense of belonging and contribution is much stronger. People are willing to sacrifice much more in support of their tribe. Further to this, their tribe is one of many sub-tribes making up the conservation movement in general. So all the conservation groups, including Earthrace, are all sub-tribes with converging values and ideals, and together we make up a very considerable tribe that is a growing and mobile force around the globe."

Earthrace Conservation is a powerful fusion of direct action, knowledge and expertise, education, and most importantly, passion, which we strongly believe will grow into one of the most effective marine conservation groups in the world.

The oceans cover over 70% of the earth’s surface – they are vast. The scale of the problems and issues being faced by marine mammals and the habitats they live in is equally immense.

In October 2013, Pete, an Earthrace team of ex-services personnel (The Operatives) and a volunteer support crew, plus the new Sealegs amphibious craft, returned home after a three month campaign in Costa Rica helping to tackle pirate vessels fishing illegally around the coast.
