Analysis of International Funding for the Sustainable Management of Coral Reefs and Associated Coastal Ecosystems
United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre

Between 2010 and 2016, more than USD 1.9 billion was committed to implement, monitor and enforce the conservation and sustainable management of tropical coral reefs and associated mangroves and seagrasses, yet coral reef ecosystems alone provide society with living resources and services equating approximately USD 375 billion per year. This analysis explores the intended purpose and spatial and temporal distribution of funding allocations. The alignment of funding with policy ambitions related to coral reefs and associated ecosystems is assessed, along with implications for future investment in the conservation of these ecosystems.

Threats posed to Marine Life in the Western Indian Ocean from Anthropogenic Ocean Noise and Shipping, including Ship strikes
Wildlife Conservation Society Madagascar, Western Indian Ocean Program

Questions and concerns about the effects of human introduction of noise into the marine environment on increasingly large scales are well-founded. Major progress has been made in understanding how animals hear and may be impacted by noise. While overall amplitude is clearly relevant in terms of how sounds in the ocean may affect animals, other aspects of sound, such as frequency, directionality, duration, novelty, and other factors can be as or even more important (e.g., Ellison et al., 2012).
