Date:2/28/2012

WASHINGTON (Feb. 28, 2012) The Pew Environment Group announced today six recipients of the 2012 Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation. They are from Brazil, Cuba, France, Peru, and the United States.

The 2012 Pew Fellowships in Marine Conservation will support projects to promote green infrastructure for climate adaptation in coastal communities, expand marine areas in Brazil that are under protection, shift the Peruvian anchoveta industry toward directly feeding humans, identify climate-driven changes in fisheries, analyze French fisheries subsidies, and conserve goliath grouper populations in Cuba, the Caribbean, and the Gulf of Mexico.

"The individuals added to this year's Pew Fellows Program in Marine Conservation are talented experts who will make important contributions to protecting the ocean environment worldwide," said Joshua S. Reichert, managing director of the Pew Environment Group. "We are proud to honor them as they work to foster greater conservation of the world's living marine resources."

The 2012 Pew Marine Fellows:

  • Michael Beck, Ph.D., is lead scientist of the Global Marine Team at The Nature Conservancy. Dr. Beck will encourage adaptation strategies that use the natural properties of coastal systems, such as coral reefs and wetlands, to reduce climate related impacts on developing coastal communities.

  • Guilherme Dutra is the marine program director at Conservation International in Brazil. Mr. Dutra's project will support the expansion of the Abrolhos Marine Protected Area Network in Brazil and use that process as a model for advancing marine protection in the country.

  • Patricia Majluf, Ph.D. At the time of her selection, Dr. Majluf served as the director of the Center for Environmental Sustainability at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Peru. On Feb. 25, she was appointed Peru's vice minister of Fisheries. As a result, the start of her fellowship will be deferre
