New Publication! Investing In Our Oceans: Insights for Building Lasting Marine Conservation Funding Initiatives

I am excited to share a recently released report on ocean and marine conservation funding. Coastal Quest, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, is pleased to announce the publication of an executive summary, Investing In Our Oceans: Insights for Building Lasting Marine Conservation Funding Initiatives.

With funding from the Curtis and Edith Munson Foundation, Coastal Quest and its implementing partner, Blue Earth Consultants, LLC, produced a glossy version of the executive summary of the 2010 study, Ocean Conservation Strategic Funding Initiatives: A Study of Successes and Lessons Learned conducted for the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. The executive summary examined 20 large-scale ocean conservation strategic funding initiatives from the government and foundation sectors to distill successes and failures, investment gaps and opportunities, and lessons to help avoid common pitfalls in achieving sustainable ocean conservation and management. It seeks to provoke more thoughtful, long-term initiatives and grant-making in ocean and coastal conservation.
