Challenge

Over 40% of the reef and mangroves in the Coral Triangle have disappeared in the last 40 years. Near-shore fishing is a serious threat to these natural resources, and reversing the effects will require a significant change in human behavior. As fishers see the threat to food and income security rise, they will seek assurances of access to traditional fishing sources, explore alternative livelihoods, and work to secure these resources for future generations.

Solution

Rare will run a program that includes outreach campaigns to build community awareness, training for local fishers to use more conservation-friendly practices, and successful community driven solutions that can be replicated throughout the region.

Long-Term Impact

Rare develops local leaders who go on to make a lasting impact in their communities. A recent alumni survey revealed that 73% of Rare partners sustained their campaigns after the formal partnership ended; 52% of alumni launched multiple campaigns.
