  • Description:
    "CI accomplished the majority of our project objectives. We trained community monitors and engagement team members increasing the number of people with sills on Community Managed Marine Areas from 10 FTEs to 20 plus. The number of people reached with conservation messages increased from 1000 to 2500 plus through seven outreach patrols. Resource violations decreased where three sub-clans remained active in the NIPA CMMA and decreased significantly in the Wialoki CMMA. The CMMA network expanded and the area of effective management and community-based enforcement increased from 277,366 to 320,000 acres by adding Wialoki, Ware islands, and the Engineer Islands. A management plan and environmental law were established in the NIPA CMMA. A community-based management plan for Wialoki was drafted while a preliminary plan for Ware was drafted and a plan is under development for Dawson. Activity increased primarily in Wialoki, Ware, and active NIPA families on conservation outreach, patrols, and biological monitoring. CI completed a community-based biological monitoring manual, 14 ecological factsheets and prepared a draft video profiling success of the Wialoki Community. Through funding raised from USAID, CI started the development of community storytelling videos to help communities discover the history of their resources and develop action plans. Finally we are working actively with the nationwide Marine Management Learning Training Network to develop the Spreading the Reach Toolkit"--Project Summary.
