Take the Challenge.

Located in a vast Pacific seascape nearly the size of the continental United States, Micronesia’s islands are exemplary microcosms for conservation with some habitats and natural communities found nowhere else on Earth.   Throughout Micronesia, the majority of people living on these small islands depend on natural resources for their food, livelihoods, traditional cultures and hopes for future long-term prosperity.

Yet the features that make these islands exceptional also make them especially vulnerable to environmental threats such as deforestation, unsustainable fishing practices, and invasive species. Half of the species in the world that have become extinct have been island species. Without immediate action, the people of Micronesia face continued degradation of the natural resources on which their culture and livelihoods depend.

YOU can help by Taking The Challenge!  Your support will allow us to build on our natural conservation successes.  Gifts to the Micronesia Challenge can be made in two ways, either as outright gifts or as pledges.  Pledges can be scheduled to be paid over a five year period.
