Five Marine Conservation leaders receive world's top award from Pew Institute for Ocean Science

Miami, Florida, USA The Pew Institute for Ocean Science and its illustrious Pew Fellows Program in Marine Conservation are proud to announce five new Marine Conservation Fellows for 2004. These exceptional leaders in ocean conservation from Argentina, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States will conduct their Pew Fellowship work in the Antarctic Ocean, the Caribbean, Patagonia, Indonesia, and the western Pacific Ocean. The five 2004 Pew Marine Conservation Fellows and their projects are:

  • Claudio Campagna, Ph.D., a research biologist specializing in large marine mammals for the National Research Council of Argentina, who will foster creation of a "Sea & Sky Park" in Patagonia.
  • Mark Erdmann, Ph.D., biologist and provincial advisor to USAID's Natural Resources Management Program in Sulawesi, Indonesia, who will develop interactive conservation courses to educate Indonesians about the threats to coral reefs and encourage actions to protect them.
  • Julia Horrocks, Ph.D., a marine ecologist at the University of the West Indies, who will expand and strengthen sea turtle conservation in Barbados.
  • Graham Robertson, Ph.D., an ornithologist and principal research scientist for Australia's Antarctic Marine Living Resources Program, who will develop alternative technology to save seabirds from becoming entangled in commercial fishing lines.
  • Craig Smith, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Oceanography at the University of Hawaii, who will design marine protected areas to protect fragile Pacific Ocean ecosystems from fishing and mining.

These five projects cover the fields of oceanic geology; engineering; environmental education; conservation of sea birds, mammals, and turtles; ecosystem management; database development, and ecotourism.
