The David and Lucile Packard Foundation has a programme under their oceans subcategory for the Western Pacific Countries of Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Micronesia. The goal of this program is to restore and ensure the health and productivity of coastal marine environments in the face of rapidly increasing pressures, in particular from overfishing. Their strategy focuses on:
• Supporting well-designed and durable systems of marine reserves as models of effective management.
• Developing sound systems of nearshore fisheries management and governance.
• Developing and promoting the skills, policies and institutions required to support effective marine reserve and fisheries management.
They do not accept unsolicited applications for funding at present for this sub-category. However, it is still worth reviewing their website from time to time as this may change.
