The type of work that we’re doing we work in Indonesia and the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea that are all part of this region that’s been identified as scientists as what we’re calling the Coral Triangle there if you look at the map it’s really kind of a big blob and basically it’s center for coral diversity has the most species of corals found anywhere in the world and what.

We’ve been doing is working with governments in that region so that include the Philippines to come up with a multi-nation plan for addressing basically marine conservation in that region and its called the Coral Triangle initiative for future food security and marine Property Valuations Sydney conservation and Think that title alone shows you how important ecosystem services are because the reason these governments are involved is is that they care about the people who rely on these resources they care about people their subsistence.

Farmers fishermen so their parts of the economy that matter but also people who rely on us who have nothing else to turn to and I i think i think that the conservancy has been effective in these areas because we work with these governments with these communities and we try to address this looking it the lens of what their needs are and being supportive I mean we learned technical expertise that maybe they don’t have we learned resources and experiences from other places that maybe they wouldn’t have access to so in that respect I think that we can be very effective and in some ways it’s easier to work in a non governmental organization because you don’t have as many of the formal protocol that you would have you know government.
