Pew announces 2013 Marine Fellows
Date:3/20/2013

WASHINGTON (March 20, 2013)--Five distinguished scientists and conservationists based in Canada, India, Indonesia, Palau, and Rwanda, are this year's recipients of the Pew Fellowship in Marine Conservation. The three-year fellowships will support research to improve ocean conservation and management, including a study of the link between healthy fish populations and healthy coral reefs off India, an evaluation of the status of marine mammal populations near Tanzania, an assessment of the success of marine protected areas in Palau, a review of traditional laws that govern marine resource use in Indonesia, and an analysis of ecological and societal impacts of sea otter recovery in British Columbia, Canada.

The Pew Fellows Program in Marine Conservation provides fellowships to outstanding scientists and other individuals across the globe to support innovative projects aimed at developing and implementing solutions to critical challenges facing the world's oceans. For the first time in the program's history, fellowship awards are going to citizens of India and Indonesia.

"These fellows, like those who have come before them, bring diverse backgrounds, skills, and experience to the task of harnessing science and research for the purpose of better understanding and protecting the world's marine environment," said Joshua S. Reichert, executive vice president of The Pew Charitable Trusts.

The 2013 Pew Fellows in Marine Conservation are:

  • Rohan Arthur, Ph.D., a senior scientist with the Nature Conservation Foundation in Karnataka, India. In his fellowship project, Dr. Arthur will gather data to better understand the contribution of healthy fish populations to the long-term resilience of coral reefs. He also will consult with fishermen to document past and present changes in fishing pressures on coral reef fish in the Lakshadweep Archipelago in India. His research will help promote ecologically sound management of fisheries an
