ICRAN gets UN Funding

“The International Coral Reef Action Network (ICRAN), which has potentially secured up to $10 million from the UN Foundation–the largest to date in the Foundation’s environment portfolio–will support “”flagship”” coral reef management demonstration sites in four regional seas: the wider Caribbean, East Africa, East Asia and the South Pacific. These sites will become blueprints for managing threatened coral reefs worldwide–protecting them from overfishing, pollution, oil spills and growing coastal populations.
