Dear Ecuador PCV's and RPCV's,
I am a RPCV from Senegal and am currently a graduate student at the University of San Francisco studying Environmental Management. I am doing a group project on the Eastern Tropical Pacific Seascape initiative, which seeks to integrate marine preserves and sustainable fisheries management in waters spanning Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Ecuador. It is being led by UNESCO and Conservation International.
To the point, I was wondering if there are any current PCV's or RPCV's who have had any experience in coastal areas of Ecuador, and possibly with coastal environmental outreach projects. We would love to know what local fisherman feel about this new initiative, whether they've heard of it, or even any information they would have on fisheries management in general. If anyone knows of any local resource managers or NGO's that have this type of experience, or work in these areas, we would be interested in getting in touch with them as well. I appreciate your time and consideration!
