"Diver On the Way to Work"



The success of the Kosrae Reef Protection Project is due in large part to the efforts of a relatively small group in individuals.   Since 1996, dedicated divers and support personnel, have given generously of their time and resources to demonstrate their belief in the value of environmental stewardship.   Significantly before the issue of global warming became part of the popular lexicon, and before dive agencies and other institutions began to emphasize the need for conservation of reef ecosystems, these volunteers recognized the status of the coral reefs as bellweather indicators of the health of the planet. Without the willingness of these individuals to contribute their time and skills, this project would not have been possible. The photos at right acknowledge the project personnel and just of few of the international volunteers who have worked with us over the years.
