Island Reach is a volunteer project, in collaboration with The Ocean Foundation, responding to global collapse in ocean ecologies and a severe shortage of conservation resources for island communities. Island Reach is helping to build resilience from ridge to reef in Vanuatu, Melanesia, an archipelago widely recognized for its remarkable biological and cultural diversity. (Map)
