WASHINGTON The Pew Environment Group announced today that four individuals, representing Chile, Mexico and the United States, received a 2011 Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation.
The 2011 Pew Marine Fellowships will support projects to map genetic patterns in dolphin populations, measure the economic and ecological tradeoffs of removing small fish species from the ecosystem, lay the scientific foundation for the establishment of marine protected areas in the Chilean fjord region and analyze the common threads in communities that prioritize environmental conservation.
"We are proud to welcome this exceptionally talented group of ocean conservationists into the Pew Marine Fellowship Program this year," said Joshua S. Reichert, managing director of the Pew Environment Group. "They've each proposed innovative projects that will help foster greater protection for ocean life and habitat in the years ahead."
