Our Micronesia: respecting and managing our land, air and sea, enhancing livelihoods, our quality of life and the environmental integrity of our islands.

  • building the capacity of Micronesians and Micronesian organizations to design and manage conservation programs, and
  • providing a regional forum to bring people from government, private enterprise, and community and non-profit organizations together to collectively address the challenges of natural resource management in Micronesia.
