Seacology epitomizes the community-based approach to achieving meaningful conservation and fills an important niche within the broader realm of conservation work. I like their focus on providing institutional and legal strength to existing relationships local people have with specific, biologically rich natural resources. Real conservation requires building and honoring sustainable connections between people and nature. In the world today where strong economic forces are pressuring even the most far-flung natural places, supporting the connection indigenous cultures have with their natural world and empowering them in the face of these forces will go a long way towards preserving their and our world. I support this work by Seacology as well as more "traditional" conservation organizations because both serve critical needs.
