Conservation targets in the Coral Triangle
What will success look like in the Coral Triangle?
By enhancing the impact of WWF’s national marine programmes in the region, we intend to promote sustainable development and reduce the environmental footprint of governments and industry. We plan to reach the following targets by 2020:
- Coral Reefs: 50% increase in area of priority coral reef habitats that is protected and sustainably managed with effective financing in place
- Species: Zero decline in the populations of 3 endangered marine turtle species (leatherback, hawksbill, green) from 2008 levels
- Transforming business: Halting and reversing the degradation of key marine resources - coral reef habitats, turtles, reef fish, and tuna
Actions for on-the-ground conservation efforts and sustainable resource management will focus on existing WWF project sites in the Sulu-Sulawesi, Banda Flores Marine, Bismarck Solomon Seas and Fiji Island Marine ecoregions.
