Sociedad de Conservación de Pohnpei (CSP)

Since 1998, the Conservation Society of Pohnpei (CSP) has worked to improve the ecological and social sustainability of a network of seven marine protected areas around the island of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia. Through environmental education and biological monitoring programmes, the initiative has coordinated marine conservation efforts across Pohnpei, while encouraging a diverse suite of alternative livelihood activities for local communities to reduce human pressures on scarce marine resources. In recent years, the organization has supported MPA sites to introduce innovative monitoring and enforcement systems that combine modern and traditional approaches.

The organization also operates an environmental education program which reaches more than 8,000 students in 27 schools across the island, has engaged in conservation of important terrestrial forests and watersheds, and has partnered in initiatives to eradicate invasive species.
