The Billfish Foundation
The Billfish Foundation works worldwide to advance the conservation of billfish and associated species to improve the health of oceans and economies. Within the context of a planet with nearly seven billion human inhabitants conservation strategies must be forward-looking and adaptive. By accounting for the roles of billfish within the marine environment as well as in relation to their interactions with humanity, TBF’s conservation campaigns maintain the flexibility to adapt to emergent threats as well as those which have historically confronted resource managers. TBF employs a multi-tiered, proactive suite of initiatives involving research—both biological and socio-economic– education, and advocacy projects. As billfish and other highly migratory species are not confined to the territorial waters of any one nation, these strategies must also take into account the differences in culture and law inherent to the international arena. Empowered by an internationally diverse constituent network. The Billfish Foundation is uniquely equipped to do just this.

Billfish Art Show & Auction
Just last year Jessie was able to help coordinate and hold a billfish art show. The pieces in the show were created by South Broward High School students who gave us permission to sell their pieces to the public through a biding process and in the end her art professor, Susan Ostheim, and Jessie were able to raise over $600 to donate to the billfish foundation towards their education program. She was also put into the newspaper for being marine student of the year for this generous offer to The Billfish Foundation.
