Science to Sustain People and The Sea
Marine Conservation Program
Together, We Can Save the Mangroves
A collaborative initiative is bringing people together in the Mesoamerican reef ecoregion to improve the management of mangroves.
What We Do
Marine spatial planning – placement of marine reserves that balance the ecological demands of ecosystems and fisheries with the socioeconomic requirements of coastal communities.
Fisheries science – understanding key fisheries and promoting their management through the collection of fisheries data and provision of management tools.
Conservation genetics – use genetic analyses to determine the connectivity between populations to identify the spatial scales required for management.
