Oceanic Society’s community-based sea turtle project in Micronesia provides Ulithi community members the capacity to also utilize science when addressing sea turtle conservation.
Total Cost for sea turtle monitoring and lcoal capacity building: $10,000.
Ulithi Reef Project
The Falalop Community of Ulithi signed Declaration of Intent to support the development of a marine resource management plan -- and a letter asking that Oceanic Society lead that effort on their behalf -- now we have a unique opportunity to implement true community-based marine conservation. Our future work on Ulithi represents a significant contribution to a multinational and multi-organizational effort to develop and implement reef conservation throughout Micronesia. Our goal now is to assist the community with the development of a plan for a Locally Managed Marine Area, the next step in permanent protection of sea turtles, reefs, seabirds and sustainability. Phase I cost is $18,000.
A donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated for the Oceanic Society or any of these projects.
