2015 Russell E. Train Fellowships - Building Capacity for Ocean Management

Oceans contain the greatest diversity of life on Earth, yet less than 3 percent of the world’s oceans are protected and more than 60 percent are located in international waters, outside any one country’s jurisdiction. WWF is working around the world to protect oceans and the human and marine communities that depend on them.

To build local capacity across the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean, WWF’s Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) is offering fellowships to future conservation leaders to enable them to pursue graduate-level study (master’s and PhD) in conservation-related fields. The goal of the program is to empower individuals to advance marine conservation in their home countries.
