Nicole Crane at Cafe Scientifique!

Nicole was invited to speak on March 11, 2014 at SRI International’s renown Cafe Scientifique. In her talk: “Forgotten Reefs, Forgotten People: How Conservation in Micronesia May Be Key to Sustainable Oceans” she discussed how we are empowering communities to sustainably manage their reef ecosystems.

It is a journey through a history of why fisheries declined, why management was forgotten, and how the communities themselves are reviving them. Starting with fishing practices, the team reaches into the very fabric that holds (and brings) these communities together and from which their cultural foundations were built.
