Click to show meeting description

The Marine Conservation Action Fund (MCAF), a micro-granting program of NEAq's Anderson Cabot Center for Ocean Life, has supported over 145 small scale, high impact projects led by ocean conservation leaders in 40+ countries since 1999. From protecting thousands of sea turtles from poachers in Costa Rica to launching the first marine mammal stranding network in Iran and helping to bring about protections for manta rays in Peru, MCAF projects and the people who lead them have had far reaching impacts. MCAF Program Officer and Chair Elizabeth Stephenson will share some of these stories of hope for the ocean and also discuss the more recent MCAF Fellows program, which helps to further celebrate and support the dedicated and skilled conservation leaders who are making a pivotal difference for the oceans.

Elizabeth Stephenson is the Program Officer and Chair of the Marine Conservation Action Fund (MCAF). Through her leadership of the Marine Conservation Action Fund (MCAF), Elizabeth provides professional support to marine conservation leaders in developing countries by connecting them with Anderson Cabot Center scientists to explore collaborations, and elevating the profile of their work through the Aquarium’s public platforms and professional network. She also partners with Aquarium educators to connect MCAF grantees with youth, so as to inspire and empower the next generation of ocean protectors.
