September 5th 2012, Jeju, South Korea - Come mingle, learn, and discuss community conservation of marine areas - one of this year's hottest topics!
A number of events at the upcoming IUCN World Conservation Congress will focus on this subject, including workshops and a social reception, hosted by Blue Ventures, the LMMA Network, the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) World Conservation Monitoring Centre, CORDIO, and James Cook University.
We want to link up local leaders with YOU. More than 20 LMMA community leaders will be joining us to share their experiences with the LMMA approach from all corners of the world, including: Fiji, Philippines, Grenadines, Kenya, Madagascar, Solomon Islands, Colombia, Comoros, India, Vanuatu, Costa Rica, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, and Australia.

Blue Ventures is an award-winning marine conservation organisation dedicated to conservation, education and sustainable development in tropical coastal communities. Through our marine expeditions, volunteers from around the world join us on career breaks, student gap years and internships, working closely with our field research teams, in partnership with local communities.
Blue Ventures' projects are focused in environmentally and culturally sensitive regions of the world. All project visitors are required to be aware that we are privileged guests in our host countries, towns and villages. We insist that all team members, acting as ambassadors to Blue Ventures, adapt their behaviour to recognise local cultural sensitivities. We have a responsibility to minimise negative impacts on local environments and communities where we work, as well as to provide tangible benefits to our host communities.
