Core team

Core team members are responsible for implementing the Coral Triangle Transboundary and Transformational Strategies. They collaborate as a team to progress the programme overall.

  1. Jackie Thomas

    Programme Leader

    Jackie Thomas brings years of conservation experience in the Pacific region to the Coral Triangle programme.

    In 2003, she joined the Australian Volunteers International Programme and was posted as Conservation Manager for WWF in the Solomon Islands until June 2005.

    Following that, she was interim Country Programme Manager of WWF Solomon Islands from March 2007 until the end of 2008, when she joined the Coral Triangle Programme in November as the Pacific Policy Officer based in WWF’s Pacific office in Fiji.



We must continue to work together - communities, governments, civil society and the private sector to look after this amazing marine biodiversity hotspot so that it continues to nurture us and our future generations.

  1. Geoffrey Muldoon

    Senior Manager, Business and Industry

    Geoffrey has accumulated more than a decade of experience working in fisheries and aquaculture sectors across the Asia-Pacific and joined WWF in 2008 as Strategy lead for the CTP Live Reef Food Fish Trade initiative.

    He now leads the seafood markets and private-sector engagement work of the CTP, addressing food security, livelihoods and responsible seafood production at a regional scale.

    Currently his main responsibility is overseeing the development of an Asia-Pacific regional seafood platform designed to provide leadership and promote a responsible seafood agenda across the spectrum of seafood enterprises.



In fisheries today, change is essential and improvement is the only rational form of change.
