Conservation Society of Pohnpei
"The Conservation Society of Pohnpei was founded in 1999 by a group of local individuals concerned with the need to preserve Pohnpei’s natural heritage while encouraging sustainable development. Over the past eight years we have grown to become one of the region’s premier conservation groups, leading the way in Pohnpei’s environmental movement through our myriad of partnership work with local communities, government agencies and organizations. We strive to mobilize community participation in resource management, promote conservation policies and laws, and develop successful alternatives to resource exploitation."Website iIncludes information about projects plus access to marine and terrestrial factsheets and results from Rapid Ecological Surveys.
