Marine Monitoring

Marine Biodiversity Program

KCSO Marine Monitoring Team
The Kosrae Conservation and Safety Organization is committed to protecting the marine biodiversity and ecosystems of Kosrae. The Marine Conservation Program works primarily on Kosrae's coral reefs and mangrove environments.

Its work is significant as it provides data and information about the status and conditions of Kosrae's marine ecosystem and biodiversity. The program's key objective is to encourage sustainable practices among the local community toward Kosrae's marine ecosystem and biodiversity.

This program also works with the local communities to discuss, plan, and set up marine protected areas in Kosrae. Our longterm goal is to have a network of marine protected areas in Kosrae.
