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)
Island Reach provides a no-fee, mobile work platform aboard Research Vessel Llyr, along with skilled support services available upon request, to local projects that seek to protect and revitalize communities while building adaptive capacity for environmental stewardship.
On December 3, 2014 Island Reach launched a bold campaign!
Our family urgently invites your inspiration to pitch in on this grass-roots & ridge to reef conservation initiative. Begin enjoying the many tangible and intangible pleasures of being part of Island Reach with your family for the holidays!
