The Asia Pacific Regional Offices
The Asia Pacific region is home to the one of the highest levels of marine biodiversity on Earth. It is also home to millions of people that depend on these marine resources for food, medicine, income and protection from storms. But as the demands of the global economy grow, the increasing pressure on these resources threatens to deplete this great storehouse of marine biodiversity and therefore to devastate the health and livelihoods of the people in the region and beyond.
SeaWeb believes the long-term success of conserving Asia Pacific marine environments and their unparalleled resources depends on bridging the gaps between communities, government, ocean experts and the media. We are dedicated to empowering communities, nongovernmental organizations and governments to advance ocean conservation through strategic communications. To that end, we offer a suite of services—from communications workshops and online resources to media briefings, fellowships, field trips, lectures and one-on-one interactions with scientists—to increase coverage of ocean issues in the news while also strengthening the communications capacity of our partners.
Although we are currently focusing our efforts in Fiji and Papua New Guinea, we look forward to working with our partners to expand our program and leverage our work in more Asia Pacific countries and islands.
