Hello, dear donors!

Thank you for your continued support. We're here to share some project updates with you. 

We'd like to try a new format to make our update a little bit more concise. We're going to list the main points here, and you can download the attached PDF for the full information (plus nice formatting and more pictures). Scroll to the bottom of this note for the PDF.

So, here's what's new since June:

  • Our September workshop in Tela, Honduras was excellent, with solid training and interesting/inspiring talks from experts. We left feeling motivated and re-energized!
  • Our fellows are true MAR Leaders: Giving TED Talks, getting promotions, organizing community soccer tournaments, promoting environmentally-friendly business practices, attending COP 11 in India, and more!
  • Project updates from Karen Aguilar (Guatemala) and Mariela Ochoa (Honduras).
  • Lots of leaders are taking advantage of the funds available for individual training/travel/etc, doing everything from bringing mentors to visit their projects to traveling to Australia for the International Coral Reef Symposium.

Thank you for your support and your interest in our program.
