$1.5 million awarded to marine conservationists

World's largest and most prestigious award for preservation of the sea

Ten ocean ambassadors from five continents, ranging from nonprofit conservation managers, to an environmental writer and marine scientists, to ocean advocates and policy makers, have been awarded $150,000 each by the Pew Fellows Program in Marine Conservation.

An initiative of The Pew Charitable Trusts in partnership with the New England Aquarium, the fellowships are awarded annually to ten outstanding individuals to conduct interdisciplinary projects that apply sound science to urgent challenges in marine ecosystem conservation, fisheries management, marine pollution, and coastal conservation. With these awards, the Pew Fellows Program seeks to foster greater public understanding of the direct and crucial relationships between life in the sea and life on land.

The 2000 Pew Marine Conservation Fellows will tackle a variety of issues, from empowering Southeast Asian villagers to save wild seahorses and raising awareness to restore the Pacific northwest salmon runs, to educating Ecuadorian fishermen to collect data that protects the Galapagos Marine Reserve. The total of $1.5 million presented annually by the Pew Fellows Program in Marine Conservation makes the fellowships the world's largest award for marine conservationists.

The 2000 recipients are from countries across the globe including Argentina, Australia, Canada, Ecuador, South Africa, the UK and the United States. They are:

Rodrigo Bustamante, Director, Marine Research, Charles Darwin Research Station, Galapagos, Ecuador
Educating Ecuadorian fishermen to assess recovery rates of depleted species in the Galapagos.

Rodney Fujita, Senior Scientist, Environmental Defense, California, USA
Examining emerging trends affecting marine ecosystems and strategies to prevent problems.
