Conservation targets in the Coral Triangle

What will success look like in the Coral Triangle?

Our conservation targets are focused on coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass beds, demersal and pelagic fish, and marine turtles. These are the foundations of the Coral Triangle’s continued existence.

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:
 
  1. Coral Reefs: 50% increase in area of priority coral reef habitats that is protected and sustainably managed with effective financing in place
  2. Species: Zero decline in the populations of 3 endangered marine turtle species (leatherback, hawksbill, green) from 2008 levels
  3. 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.
