With the support of the Curtis and Edith Munson Foundation, Coastal Quest and its implementing partner, Blue Earth Consultants, LLC, are excited to share the graphically designed executive summary of the 2010 study, Ocean Conservation Strategic Funding Initiatives: A Study of Successes and Lessons Learned conducted for the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. The executive summary examined 20 large-scale ocean conservation strategic funding initiatives from the government and foundation sectors to distill successes and failures, investment gaps and opportunities, and lessons to help avoid common pitfalls in achieving sustainable ocean conservation and management. It seeks to provoke more thoughtful, long-term initiatives and grant-making in ocean and coastal conservation.
