Benioff Proposal

Benioff Proposal

AME Cheif Science Officer Dr. Sonia Rowley submitted a proposal to the Benioff Ocean Initiative to expand our ongoing efforts to document deep coral reefs in Pohnpei. The proposal outlines how multiple stressors can challenge coral ecosystems, and inhibit them from recovering from major threats such as ocean warming. Through this effort, we hope to demonstrate an exploratory-based conservation model: to discover, share, protect, and leverage a natural capacity, the raw material of which already exists. The proposal included a short video outlining the idea behind the proposed effort.
